Thoughts - Agbleze Selorm

As you laid there in mute
I heard you mention my name
Could you hear me at the other side of the river?
By my window I saw you pass by stripped of mortality
Reminding me of those days we spent together
Down the rocky beaches
Casting wishes upon the setting sun
Tears are nothing
But the heart’s speech in liquid
They are of no use now
For they give not life
'Til the day I feel your warm embrace
I will continue to wonder
If you could hear me at the other side of the river.

This is one deep poem. I love the descriptive essence and the dark moods of loss and longing. Selorm, congrats. I love 'Thoughts'!
