The Burden Poems by Ama Plange
] Falling in love
] Mine eyes have taken no strain
] my insanity its power gain
] When I look upon his handsome kind
] Then comes love deepening within my mind
] So did I see him to whom I cherish
] for someday he'll be mine; let no love perish
] I long to be his beautiful bride
] Happy and merry by his side
] visible in love forever lasting,
] Time never waits and always pasting
] I made my wish now let it be answered
] Drown me with faith and love mastered.
] The meeting
] How glad am I to make his acquaintance,
] my waiting so long has brought forth my patience,
] he appeared to me richer than wealth,
] my heartbeats fast narrowing my health.
] Into our visual sights he gave a polite smile
] we exchange with contact voices for a while
] my hope and dreams arrive soon and true
] deepens with our love that exists so pure.
] The Marriage
] I married my love, I am now his wife
] bonding together with the love of my love
] as the years and anniversaries past on
] a crown with good fortune tight fully bond
] talents and geniuses our four children inherit
] blessed with joy and all great merit
] Tragedy cuts short our happiness abort
] like a shipwreck crashing at seaport
] My will to live for a while longer
] I am so weary, ill no stronger
] terminal grows controlling my deepest depths
] Our children, my husband, how will they cope?
] all what lies is my prayers and hopes.
] The widower
] Beautiful and bold my lovely wife
] to whom I love all my life
] Our children inherited her gifted creations
] her charms and graces all genetic imitations
] In my night dreams I see her every night
] comforting me with messages in rays of light.
] My wife, dearest wife
] the love of my forever lasting life
] she has gone away from me,
] this is not how it was meant to be.
] And I a burden widower alone
] with only her memories I own.
