A Note In The Wind - NW

Together we stayed, He took me in, He embraced me, A son of his troubled daughter, She was saddled with life's changing faces, She was cocooned by its tempest, Cloaked into its midnight, It was an unearthed love and a flowery relationship, As time progressed our uncommon grounds began to unfold, I was no more playing the role of his grandson, I was encumbered with tasks that stretched me to yield points, He took decisions that hit me like a rock, Like a bird on a wire ready to fly, He threw a stone and I took flight, For years we didn’t see but spoke a few times, As I go on a walk, A note filters into the wind, I go down memory lane, I see your face in the last picture I saw of you, It dawned on me that you have gone beyond borders, It became clearer that you have crossed to another side, I beat myself for not seeing you before the call away, The lessons you taught me still linger with me, The hard way you made me go through has made me hold tenaciously on to life, Someday we'd come together again, Apart life takes us to bring us yonder together.
