Made in Heaven

She was lost when she felt his hand on her cheek

“Come with me”, he said

She held his hand and they started walking into the forest.

“A part of you knows that we’re gonna get through this”, he tightened the grip of his hand over hers.

“Whenever you used to say something like this, I would believe it but this time, the pain won”, she was staring at the ground

“I miss him too”, his voice trembled, “our baby boy, but it’s been two years. You mean the world to me and I can’t survive in this world if my world crumbles”.

“I’m so sorry”, she hugged him while sobbing, “Whenever I try to start afresh, I see my pain in your eyes…that’s what pulls me back…OUR pain”.

“Maybe we’ll get through this maybe we won’t…we can’t…ever…”, she whispered

He hid in her hug and he cried after two years

Lullaby

New dawn awaits

Let our fears trip,

We’ve got each other

to soothe ourselves,

For God created this bond

That’s meant to be strong,

The burden’s been lifted

from our shoulders,

As this time

We’ll ace our trials

    love the format in two parts. there is always hope, it just lies ignored till we find the trigger in the form of love, god or bonds that can see through trials.

    Great composition. The break of style usually make one part weaker than the other, but here, you’ve found a balance so it doesn’t stand out or punch down on the different segment of the concept. I can sense a change in volume of the emotion you’ve imprinted in the words. It gradually grows stronger. That lullaby was well landed. Fine piece Commander. Keep this sort of things coming.

    Together, they rise from the depths of despair to see a glimmer of hope. A poignant combination of story and verse.

    Pain is always a catalyst of change. And change is always painful. But, it gives a chance for a better, more meaningful existence. Beautifully written.
