Shades of Blue

Tired of counting fingers

Still the thought of you lingers

Yes, i would wait for you

Here in this shades of blue

I call this ‘missing you’

Sure hope you feel it too

Spring time and summer

Can we rewind to the former

When I had you here with me

My arms around you tenderly

The warmth of your embrace

You smile and i kiss your face

Fingers entwine softly

Earn a kiss…so costly

Two becoming one

The fire of our love slowly burn

Hand in hand, walk down the road

Leave an impression left untold

They stare, i smile with pride

So wonderful, you by my side

The fights are so short lived

Lesson learn each time relieved

To hold you is all that matters

To mend our hearts left in shatters

The compass pointed west,so u went

So little time we got and spent

The tears and parting goodbye

Broken to see my baby cry

My days would never be the same

At night i ll call out your name

Too far away for me to hold you

So out of sight, so out of view

I ll someday see you again

To ease this constant emotional pain

Lonely, hoping you d fine too

Here in this shades of blue

  1. Awww I had cry if I got this poem..
    Bright send this to her and be sure you would be out of the shades of blue soon because she had come back to you..
    I Love this poem..it’s filled with emotions..raw ones..

    In other news…d line ‘lesson learn each time relieved’ does read a bit off..
    Try Lessons learn, Lessons learned or Lesson learned..whichever goes with d previous and flows in continuation perfectly..

  2. Lovely poem capable of winning any woman’s heart as proven above, although the flow was somewhat lost at the end. And I don’t quite understand this line in the last two lines “Lonely, hoping you d fine too”… Do you mean lonely, hoping you’d be fine too? Or is it – lonely, hoping you’d find too?

  3. I think it’s okay…
