Empty Nest #WednesdayVerses
As the years went passing by,
I went to a different place.
It was necessary or so it seemed,
My dreams I had to chase.
I was happy at the prospect of it,
Because now I could be independent.
I put in my heart and soul to get there,
For I’d grown up now and could no longer be dependent.
Beginning my life in a new place,
Brought me joy, for now I could be free.
Excited for this new phase,
I rubbed my hands with glee.
The first few days were full of bliss,
I savoured every bit of freedom.
But slowly things seemed amiss,
For each day I was greeted with boredom.
The emptiness grew everyday,
My heart longed for the warmth of home.
No matter how hard I pushed my feelings away,
I couldn’t deny that I wanted to go home.
Tears welled in my eyes,
As I thought of the empty nest,
The one I’d left behind,
The one where now I’d only be an occasional guest.
I wish I could go back in time,
And go back home, to cherish each moment.
But life only moves forward,
And I’ll forever have to live with this torment.
