The Farewell

The day may bring a weep and sigh
As we bid a mournful last goodbye.
We lingered by the rusty gate 
That hangs the silver moon of late.

You said dont shed a single tear
But in your eyes the pain you bear.
So explain today or may you solve
Why faith is gone and ceased is love.

I'd hoped you'd give the kindest care
Respect and love what once was dear.
But along you came upon the land
With a cruel gest,a new found man.

To stir the flames of deep despairs
To burn the face with woesome tears.
But in your spite you shall not move
A mournful tear or my love to prove.

    "To stir the flames of deep despairs"-- excellent, beautiful verse; am so jealous that I did not think of it! Another exceptional piece, Mustapha; excellent work! :)

    Mustapha, my new found friend, your writing is exquisitely fashioned into a poignant final farewell. You'll find that theme in many of my posts. I enjoy your form and rhythm. I will be visiting you often.... Jake
