Realization

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As I look at the pebbles
Collected over the years from the beaches,
And kept in jars labeled ‘love’,
I realize,
How out of place they look on the mantelpiece.

 

As I clench my hand tight,
Life, love and all that I thought I had
Slips between the fingers,
And I realize,
The hand only had some sand, and is now empty.

 

As I look into your eyes and search
For memories of happier times,
I can only find a cold gaze.
I suddenly realize,
That the eyes cannot show, what the heart never had.

 

As I reach out to embrace the morning rays
And try to kiss the dew on the petals
Something pulls me back,
And I realize,
That heart will crave for things, that a hand can never touch.
