~::~ Piece Of Me ~::~
I’m searching for a part of me
A part that’s precious and esteemed
It’s been lost for eternity
I search but it was unredeemed
A precious part of me it seemed
Yet unfound for infinity
I have combed for it high & low
Through the various realms of earth
Hidden mocking, it lay furlough
Concealed it stayed, content and mirth
Through all realms I tried to unearth
The mocking part veiled & stowed
Clandestine union it would be
The day I find that missing piece
Atlast I’d be complete & free
All fears and anxieties would cease
Contentment dwells & heart at peace
When the missing piece completes me
I hope you liked the poetry, please leave your comments, feedback and brickbats
