Laurel and Tears


“As I waited with garlands

You were swathed with the pennon

In your memory, framed on the wall”

    So touchy. Really made me realise the absence of someone close. The picture could have different though. Just a suggestion.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion. I will surely see if I can find a better and more relevant picture But I put that picture in the imagery of a bride waiting for her husband to return from the battlefield

        The slight smile drew my attention. A writer is always right, because he is the victim of his thoughts. So in a tone, the image went with what you wrote.

      2. Yes that also caught my eye, I but it up as a proud wife whose husband laid down his life for the country. Indeed I agree with you

  2. That is so deep and soul stirring! It’s so difficult to let the loved one leave and wait for return!
