" COMPASSION " MY PHOTO, ©

Image may contain: flower, plant and nature





I saw the bitter tears of unhappiness
Running down your agonizing face,
Ravaged with pain,

And I became a sponge of compassion
To absorb them.


I heard the howling 
Of your starving stomach,
Echoing throughout your rebellious drained veins,

And I became a sweet loaf of bread
To feed you.


I tasted the torturous thirst 
Of your dry lips,
Burning fire, consuming your every single tissue,

And I became the vivifying fresh water
To quench it.


I sensed the presence of sickness 
In your tormented body,
Devouring your vibrant well-being,

And I became salutary medicine to nurse you
Back to health.


I felt the terror
In your trembling gracious heart,
Scaring away your lofty humane virtues,

And I became fortifying courage to obliterate
Your distressful fears.


I found you lost in the darkness 
Of joyless desperation,
Walking towards the abominable cliffs of self-distraction,

And I became a bright ray of hope to guide you
To self-realization.


I discovered you shivering 
in the middle of savage winter,
Wandering around without a roof over your frozen head,

And I became a shelter of warmth to protect you
From merciless cold.


I watched you suffering 
from excruciating solitude,
Feeling the ever depressing loneliness in your tormented soul,

And I became your constant 
Caring companion.


I noted the torture 
Of merciless rejection,
Destroying your wonderful, tender feelings,

And I became 
Your faithful loved one.


I observed you struggle 
In the rough sea of life, fighting your way, 
Over the ominous waves of human malice,

And I became a solid boat of charity 
To bring you on the serene shore.


I witnessed your efforts 
To climb the mountains of desirable success,
Struggling, hopelessly, up the steep path of attainment,

And I became a firm ladder of mercy 
To help you reach the very top.


I discerned you fighting against your brutal enemies
Trying to overcome their beastly power, 
With your bare hands,

And I became a heavy sword of justice 
To make you victorious.


I perceived the sharp arrow 
Of relentless death, 
Heading towards your loving, caring heart,

And I became a shield of concern 
To save your precious life.


You ask me why I do all these things for you...

The answer is very simple my friend:
It is because 

I LOVE YOU!

* I would like to thank all of you my friends because without your presence and your appreciation the honor of POTD wouldn't have been possible. I would also
like to thank the officials of Poetrysoup for the honor bestowed on my poem!
