“If God Wills”
Posted on 6/3/2012
Knowing that Heaven lies under your foot,
I write this poem as a tribute,
To you, my mother.
From the day , I cried first in this world ,
To that day when “we are destined to meet again”
I have been send to you as a symbol of love,
From the heavens above.
And when we first met, I was welcomed by you
And the rest of the world with smiles.
At that instant, little did I know
Of what was in store for me …
But now, as the cord that held us together is no more,
We were given the choice of anointing
The paths of our own…
At that instant, little did I know that the path
I were to choose , would lead me to nowhere
And neither did I realize that you
Were always there for me
To look upon for guidance.
How could I be so wrong
When you were right there all along …
How could I be so blind
When you were always there for me to find …
And now, everything has come down
To this moment.
As you are on your death bed,
Telling your divine beads
And on my leg, lies your head
But all I can do is stare at your face
So pale and white, the driven winter snow
Feeling helpless, explicit now
That I was too late
And yet, all I did ,
Was put the blame on fate…
As you bade farewell to this blessed world,
I cried and counted my tears, drop by drop
Still wearing the scars of yesterday
And understanding the true purpose of my life .
And now ,as I stand in this fortress
That you’d built with your man,
I can feel that absence, that serenity
Which may have eloped with you.
But I know that “every breath that I’m taking
Is leading me closer to you”…
I look up to the sky,
seeking for answers.
When will he come , the Angel of death,
When will it be my turn
For I’m waiting
Yes , indeed I’m waiting,
Because “We are destined to meet again” …
