Whispers

Light filters through an open window,
And the glass shines on the floor below,
Raindrops cascade with sheets of snow,
The room now has a fading glow.

I am looking outside the open door,
there is someone I am waiting for,
but you will not come back here, no more.

All I have is a picture of you,
the mirrors we used to look into,
a letter with my name on it; is all that I can hold on to.

The wind blows in through the whispering rain,
Whistles on the window pane,
The rain will fall,
The snow will fall,
The wind will blow away,
I will sing songs to myself and loneliness who will stay,
Seasons forever; will be this way.

Soon the silent night will come,
The darkness gives its secret call,
And once again, holding back the pain,
I will look for you; in the shadows of midnight rain.

  1. There are poems that bring hope and then there are the ones that are beautiful for the pain they convey. This poem is similar to that. The hope that you bring to find in disconsolate despair somehow touches the heart. The words are carefully chosen.. “Light filters through an open window,
    And the glass shines on the floor below,” It is a scene that everyone knows. The fight to find meaning when life is seemingly meaning and the comfort of finding an ally in memories then an uncertain future and you, my friend, have done a great job here.. That is all.
