Old and Abandoned
#I still exist
I still exist, Your old crumbling Manor
Abandoned and thrown for new luxuries
Once a meadow-covered, now a dilapidated, waiting for your answer
Why you made my soul dead? Perhaps, it wouldn’t have recoveries.
I just craved to see my grandkids playing and fulfilling their dreams
But, Alas! you abandoned and thrown me away only to lament
As I became old? Strains you gave, make soundless screams
I broke and became depressed and emotionally-vacant.
Yet, I still exist, stand deserted immobile, nights and days
The mist of memories still echo in my walls
And, I stand in a calm and composed way
But every corner moan, when images of soft flowers I recall.
I still exist, my sad old windows only hope for your call
To see the rays of sunshine,
Just before the curtain fall.
I only wish to embrace my family’s warmth, Oh divine!
