trip to forever

thank you zen, for allowing me to lift this lovely poem from your friendster blog. this is one of my many favorite works of your's.



The old woman goes there everyday
Waits in vain
Even if she knows yah she is waiting in vain
But she patiently sits there,on the same spot everyday
Everyday without fail.....
She would gaze at the blue sky and laugh alone
Then shed tears....that will always fall on the same spot
On her lower lip
The salty taste of it will mingle with the smile
That never fails to shine
When she remembers that the one she waits for
Has long been gone
And she would everytime ask herself
Why the smile?
And she would answer with the same thing everytime
The end of something is better than its beginning
Then she would silently retrace her steps
Walk towards home
And mumble silently a name from long ago
Her walking stick would guide her through the way
She would trip once in a while
But she vows to go there again tomorrow
Until the morrow fade away....

  1. such joy, such sorrow!!! it's tragedy to feel the two. however, life in general and love in particular are full of boths, let's give it our best shot because that's the best we can possibly do...

  2. oh! zen, its such a haunting piece.it makes me smile and makes me sad at the same time(if such ambivalence is possible).the devotion and love of the old woman to the loved of her life is truly enduring,such joy and such sorrow to behold!!

    let me tell the young lady in the old woman that such is the price of true love…. enduring,weathering….sweet bitter memories!!!
