MINE

i shared her breath as one,
till i could find mine.

i sucked her energy,
so i could nurture mine.

i was in her arms,
till i could flex mine.

I didn't listen when she uttered,
a name that was mine

i never heard her prayers,
as i made noise of mine.

I didn't feel her pain when i was
lost in a world of mine.

I didn't see her sacrifice,
as i was busy with a life of mine,

i couldn't repay her when
the time was mine.


i thought she would stay forever
only to realize later,
she was never mine
and nothing is mine.

it is full of truth. tells us how important it is to value people and relationships in our life... we never realize the importance of someone till they leave us
