A Second Chance (A Rubáiyát)


I am crying all night long

Asking myself, where did we go wrong?

Pride has overtaken love

Mind is frail and weary though I need to be strong


Up in the sky you fly gracefully like a dove

Should I hold your freedom, when you are enjoying high above?

When you want to let go, I will not force you to stay

I feel so cold and numb,  you took off the glove


I woke up this morning seeing all grey

Stll haunted by regrets, they never missed a day

In my arms, know that you still belong

A second chance, this I humbly Pray

  1. Some of us may not know, but some of us do.

    This is so beautifully composed, that there is no comment to compliment it.

    If I were to ever want to enter a poem in a contest–This would be the one I would use.

    Just for the sake of replying to this lovely poem.—- 

    Although you have pushed me away It is with you I long to stay Holding you forever in my arms I am still here, but you do not see Others have blurred your vision. Keep your attention away from me But here I will stay, patiently For you I will remain I’ve been here all along, for you I am waiting for this moment You never have to fear I am yours till I die, yours alone

     Love, Johnny
