Lost Love

Written By: Ehab Shawky


Memories call on me
‘Close your eyes and see,
There she approaches
In her checkered dress
Smiling excitedly
Watching you delightedly.’

I close my eyes and dream
Of hearts that used to gleam
Breathing life into all surroundings
Uncovering amazing findings
Ever green shining trees
Swaying with scented breeze
Blowing from blooming flowers
Singing for hours and hours
the most beautiful lyrics
uplifting our spirits
Embracing our love
beside the nest of a white dove

Knowing how pure our love was
Sensing its vulnerability to life’s cruel laws
The dove flew high
taking our love to the sky
leaving behind two embracing bodies
one of them soulless,
and the other heartless,
staring sadly like temple effigies,
seeking solace in endless elegies.
