Incomplete

by Praveen Kumar

pals - Incomplete

the grey sky looming above,
rain drops still dripping down
from the pregnant clouds above,
we set out on our journey once again;

around and around we go
in slow circles, moving
to the beat of the thunder
and rain that surrounds us;

as the droplets hit the ground,
shattered realizations lay scattered
reminding me nothing is same
as it seems to be;

as another memory turns to dust
i cut the lifeline that attaches me to the past
and i shove it back into the depths
where nothing will ever bring it back alive;

the rain does nothing to stop our journey,
never forgetting, who we are
we walk these streets of madness,
knowing that,without each-other…..
we are simply incomplete.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. – Anaïs Nin

It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship. – Henry Ward Beecher

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends – Martin Luther King, jr.

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.  It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.  We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.  ~Albert Schweitzer

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Can you tell me the name of the poem or show me the complete poem in which these lines are contained; “the moving finger having writ, moves on and not a word or wit can change a line of it”

Hi I was wandering, would it be okay if I used your poem as lyrics to a song? It’s a lovely poem, but I thought I better check first (:

who ever we are there’s this missing piece that we’re always waiting for to be completed and to feel safe cus you’re not by yourself anymore; someone to rely on and to believe in without thinking at all
