Dedicated to Nova's heart

This is a reposted poem I am now dedicating to Nova's heart

Nova's Heart




I checked out my stats to see who all visited. Something I don't do often. And I ran across this story about a baby born with a congenital heart defect. Well at the top I saw a link to my poem "Today I Set You Free. . And this really took my breath away. I am honored that they used this poem. And sad that baby Nova had to leave us so soon.

To Erin, (mommy) And your entire family, may you be in peace.

Today I set you Free

Today I set you free
to be who you need to be
Our paths crossed
In a magical place

It was the perfect choice
But your heart was too fragile
Our destination was not meant to be

Day by day, reflections
Of us in shattered glass
This is a place I can never return
Our destiny was never meant to be

Poems of love will now fade
Trails of tears will be distant
In the oasis two soul mates
Stand with faces silent

The thunder of forgotten dreams
Will now sound throughout infinite
May you be at peace
Under a gossamer sky
And fly on the wings of an angel
Throughout your journey

Erin,
You are so very welcome.

Sometimes in life, things don't always work out, but sometimes in a quiet time you just know that although a parting has happened everyone is still all right.

Wonderful poem & blog about a fragile star here on earth that was only here for a short while but his star is shining ever so brightly in the heavenly skies.

It amazing how all things connect. I have a friend I met at university called Nova. We lost touch for years until earlier this year when I got hold of her email address. She emailed me a few days ago in response to the mail I sent with my photo.

Beautiful poem, Shy. Thank you.

Love EJ

Dear Shy,

How have you been? Sorry for the extreme long absence (and it will still continue) since I am currently burdened with academia. The intensity has increased but the amount of time still remains the same and I do think it has driven my Muse away in despair. She will not be back soon (though I long for her sweet melodious presence). Take care and lead a good life.

Regards
Aristocrat

Wow. That really puts things in perspective. Thank you for sharing.


Also, sorry I haven't stopped by in a while to say hi. I have been a bit busy with other things, lately.

Aristocrat said...

Dear Shy,

Amidst the fighting of sleepiness (6.45am here and I haven't caught a wink), I decided to drop by and just say hi. Hope you are doing a-ok?

Troy Dunn said...

What took the words of a poet away?

Tru said...

Hello there Shyloh. I know, I know I'm late as hades dropping in. But glad I did. For who've thought I'd run into this heart taking poem and story on Nova. Very moving.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I boast no knowledge of poetry and the few I've ever written and posted...well I am a comedian by trade.

In any event, looks like you have a lovely blog here. If you're ever up for a link exchange just let me know.

sirbarrett said...

Something like this is worth having gone through even if it wasn't "meant to be"

Alex said...

Did you decide to shut down "silent etc." as I couldn't access it this morning. If you did, that's OK.

shyloh said...

Hey alex it is still there. Told ya of all the problems I have. Try again later.

abhay k said...
