When I am gone


When I am gone



When I am gone…..
The music that we create you and me,
A symphony so divine and incredible
With our body and soul playing as one,
Will become nothing but an echo
That resonates through the corridors of our heart.

When I am gone…..
The love that was awakened in us
After lifetimes of loneliness and searching,
That always brought a smile on our lips
Will be sealed away in the deep recesses of our mind,
To reminisce and debate about “what ifs” on lonely days.


When I am gone….
The song that sings in our hearts,
A tune so beautiful and ethereal
That our hearts dance as one in ecstasy,
Will become frozen in time forever
That cries to be resurrected in another lifetime.

When I am gone….
The veil of ignorance that was lifted
And we rediscovered what had been lost
A love story, an ancient tale that is timeless,
Will come down for always before it begins,
And our tale carried by the winds of time to oblivion.


When I am gone….
The journey that had held a promise of togetherness,
Of golden dunes, snowy mountains, tranquil sea and exotic lands
To hold and behold as one, a fusion of two souls
Will become a weary path of a lonesome traveler
That holds no magic, no fulfillment, and no desire.

When I am gone….When I am gone…When I am gone…..

  7. One day at a time,this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
    This is exquisite work...Rimly,you sure know how to touch one's soul...I simply love it.

  10. Rimly, this was so romantic and sad. Why is it that epic love always seems to end in tragedy? Is it because they know that they will die? Perhaps. Yes, that must be it.
    You're such an amazing poet Rimly.

  17. Poignant, so sad, so exquisitely written . . . my heart is touched deeply by this as I recall the loss of my husband, John, many years ago.

    Blessings, Rimly!

  18. This has to be one of your best poems, Rimly. when are you sending your creations to press? about time girl, you are depriving many others of your talent.

  19. Rimly, We never really leave, our heart always hovers over those we love and our thoughts linger around theirs. What we do is distance our bodies from hurtful situations and people but our souls remain connected forever. Your poems bring out so many emotions in us and we ache and feel with you. Would love to read a poem about your heart's boundless happiness and joy next time, my dearest friend.

  20. Oh my soul sis love...you're back into dark poetry. It gave me the shivers just thinking about it... although I like the 'fusion of souls' part.

    You always bring me to that area in me I do not wish to look at nor want to touch ~ honest... direct... profound... that is you :)

  23. Martha I hope remembering your late husband did not make you feel sad. I hope you remembered him and all the good times you had with him. This poem is one of my sad poems written earlier. But I think now my poems are more positive. Thnak you for your comment

  25. Sulekha I know what you mean. This was one of my first poem and those days they were dark and sad. As someone told me today that I needed to deal with pain naturally and writing sad poems earlier was cathartic. I think my tone of poetry has improved a lot now. LOL! Thank you Outlier for your always wise and honest comments

  26. Hello my sweet soul sis Melissa, this was an earlier dark poem. Dont get into it if it makes you hesitate. Many a time we dont want to go in there. I used to write very dark poems but I think now they are much more positive. Take care dear. xoxo
