The Day You Went Away

Into that world forbidden to me …

The day you went away,

a strong wind blew,

it blew across the skies

and I pictured you sailing by,

on a white cloud drifting with the wind,

sailing by as you went away to the eternal sky.

If I had a sailing ship,

made of white fluffs of clouds,

I’d be sailing there beside you –

just to see you on your way and for now to say goodbye.


The day you went away,

the summer sun,

hid behind dark clouds

and I knew you would no longer be mine.

You had a mission,

to join the angel choirs,

to leave me behind –

but ever shining your love upon me.


The day you went away,

my world turned upside down,

my smile became a frown.

Suddenly my carousel,

with bright colored horses,

came to a halt.

The colors all faded,

to shades of black and white –

when Gabriel his horn did blow.


The day you went away,

I found the threshold,

into that world forbidden to me.

but I knew you were close by,

still loving me,

as long as we left the portals open –

our love would continue to shine.


The day you went away,

my world changed,

I could no longer remain,

where so many memories,

came crashing through.

So I knew,

it was time to move on,

knowing you would come with me.

watching over me,

loving me,

until once again –

together we can be.

    Beautiful piece Rasma. A tribute to all those that have passed. It is comforting to know that they are available to look in on us as we struggle in our earthly experience.

    It’s very traumatic losing the love of our life. But I also know they watch over us and await the day we meet again on the other side of this world. He would want you to move on with your life but to cherish your memories spent together. Love is forever. Nicely and expressively penned Rasma.

    Heartbreakingly sad but beautiful as well, Rasma. Words from deep in your heart it is obvious.

    A lovely rendition, Rasma, of the heart-break of losing a partner and the emotions of living without them. Indeed until you meet again. Great work. Cheers!
