Distances

Distaces of heart,are true loss.

Written for 6 Word Saturday

*******

Today at Toads , the prompt was to take inspiration from one of the songs in the playlist for a poem. I chose Hymn for the weekend and the only reason is that the video for this song was shot in my home country and I am a little homesick this week before the birthday.

Wonder what distances mean,
for hearts that beat as one;
every smiles and tears
shared over video calls;
days split in time zones,
never missing a moment
to celebrate each special day –
birthdays, anniversaries, festivals
every single one kept on hold
waiting for me to return home;
families – strength to survive
and the reason I go back
to memories carefully wrapped
in prayers I never felt in the past –
Family is a hymn, the angels
guiding my passage to God.

Spread the love, spread the word ..

  1. Though my loved ones do not live across continents, my lonliness for them is palpable. Thank you for this lovely poem.

  2. This is incredibly evocative, Pratibha! โค๏ธ I could feel every word especially; “strength to survive and the reason I go back to memories carefully wrapped in prayers I never felt in the past.” Thank you so much for writing to the prompt ๐Ÿ™‚
