We Kiss Goodbye On a Silent Morning
("sonnet")


We kissed goodbye on a silent morning
When thorns and lilies lay in deep slumber
Still departing, we did hug each other
And smiles on our face go a sorrowing

In my heart, we never paused for a beat
Nor did the blue moon, our day light spells break
For the dark night, a dream is ours to make
With tears running, never paused a breathe
For a love, pure in a heart still broken
And now here we part, never returning
And a thousand thoughts are through me running
From the tears and the words left unspoken
To the raging storm that darkens my view
On a night when all the heavens seem blue
- Okoye Charles (Mr. Charles)

  2. a passionate theme it is, but as a sonnet, the rhyme scheme and the iamb is somehow
