Only an Ocean Away

A walk by the sea
Of my own imagination
Searching for the words
For one of the many
Yet unwritten compositions
My soul sings
Without lyrics

Aiming to still portray
How it felt to love her –
With all of me
How it felt to be adored –
By her heart
How her soul entwined with mine
In the deepest meaning of the word:

The longing north wind
Quietly weeps her name:
soft, melodic and merry

I don’t have to wander
The trails of yesterday
So that I could find her again
She is still in a sacred place
Where I once welcomed her

The slumbering waves sigh
They evoke memories of the moments
When we fell asleep hand in hand
When my touch was more than a touch

I whisper my four lettered confession
To the place
Where the sea joins the sky
With an invisible kiss

Infinite sea,
Please carry my love to her shore
To the place
Where she nourishes her soul

Tell her
I’m never alone
On my endless exploration journey
There is always hope
Walking by my side
Gratitude in my heart

The memory of our love

  1. I wrote this piece last year. Today, my heart is heavy. I have no words. A lot of time has gone by and a lot has changed. I have taken some important steps forward, and the Universe has rewarded me with a few surprises, but still today I grieve. I’m not ashamed to admit how much I do miss her, because if I can’t be honest to my heart – how can I be honest to anyone else?

    I don’t shed tears because I lost a lover. My heart mourns because I lost a soul friend. I hope she is happy.


    1. Likewise…
      I hope your heart, PoetNoora, is unburdened soon
      So that your smile peeks
      beyond the heavy hug of memory
      like a newborn to the moon
      up-turned to the sunny cast of your scared pen…


  2. “Longing is the core of mystery. Longing itself brings the cure.” – Rumi. Thank you for stopping by again, Karen. I can’t wait to read more of your poetry.


  3. I felt your words. It was really nice.

    Yet I wonder, how can it be that

    “…Longing itself brings the cure” ?

    When longing itself is the plague that is caving me into the darkness. At least, in my personal experience.


    1. Thank you for stopping by. Your words and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

      To me, longing can be a sweet, beautiful and inspiring emotion, but also bittersweet or extremely painful state.

      I was referring to my personal struggle which is a longer story. I’ve been desperately hoping for some peace of mind. I was running out of options until I realized that perhaps writing (about my longing etc.) is the only “cure” for me… still hoping it might eventually help me gain some peace of mind – if that makes any sense.

      Love and light, Noora x


  4. I have today just discovered your blog and already it has a special place in my heart. Thank you for your beautiful soul and your beautiful words.
