YOU’RE THE REASON BEHIND…
by Allwin Bright
Languishing away in a prison called life,
Filled with pain, torment and grief.
Woeful days never seemed to end,
Being alive was something that I had to pretend.
Amidst all this… Why did I see you?
Adorable, innocent and so true.
So generous of you to offer me a warm embrace,
When all that I needed was some solace.
Your mere presence was a lot for me to rejoice,
Wounds deep were healed by your pacifying voice.
To your unconditional love I was madly addicted,
You were the reason I was resurrected.
Too little did I know to anticipate,
Of a cruel twist scripted by fate.
You had your reasons to shut me down,
Hit by a violent storm I was blown.
Trapped in my emptiness all alone,
Messed up is my life again with you gone.
Yet I am still alive and breathing,
The very thought your smile keeps me going.
