Last Sigh

I built a nubile nest for them so we could live together kept it warm in the long winter time of frost and freeze no speeding storm of strife could ever sweep it away where I held them secured within my enwrapping wings. They grew up nurtured in the cradle of love and care learned how to build and face life in their chosen way as a parent the process with them I could affably share the ephemeral delight lasted till they chose to fly away. In the flood of the surging river of drowning sadness I felt the load of loneliness sink deep within my essence as from the eroded bank of yearning they disappeared and I heard the distant bell of destiny toll faintly for me. As the flow of time searched for a course to the eternity in twilight’s fading gleam I breathed the air of desolation I heard it whisper the swan song to me on the passing resonating in my soul with the rhythm of my last sigh.
