Lover’s Embrace, Bangladesh
A lover’s grace
Into a life time of
In your arms I fell
Into love with you
Into your arms I fell
Before the final fall
Of it all
Our lover’s embrace
In the dust and the rubble
Our love will show hope
The mighty strength
Of a lover’s embrace
A lifetime of two
Left a trace
Of a lovers embrace
An image in time
Forever etched in our mind
Of a non collapsible love
Rising spirits up above
The last gift of grace
Of a lovers embrace

If you have to pass, in the arms of the one you love isn’t terrible. Very nice.
I agree with donofalltrades, but it’s also so sad.
Tragic. Excruciatingly sad. I had tears in my eyes when I wrote this.
Poetry often expresses our deepest of our emotions, most basic of all, joy or sadness. Thanks a lot for giving so much thought to these people who died for no fault of theirs. They died true, but they died in each others arms. I think that would be more a blessing than one of them being half alive. Pardoxes abound.
Beautiful! Since the incdence we’ve seen this photo so many times in newspapers and the whole nation cried. Now, your poetry made me cry again. Thank you for such a nice work.Thank you for thinking about Bangladesh.
How could I not.
Beautiful poem about a horrific tragedy. Is it naive of me to hope that this doesn’t happen again?
I think we all hope that it never happens again! I don’t want to get started on the politics of it all so I stuck woth poetry as a form of expression.
A picture speaks a thousand words… and your poem pulls them together ❤
Thank you for the kind words.
That is truly beautiful writing, yet very sad. Thank you for sharing.
It is sad. But it needs to be addressed.
So sad…. but what a LOVING gesture of the man trying to protect his love… Wow. A picture is worth more than a thousand words here.
Shocking isn’t it. Love is so powerful.
lovers’ embrace beyond
as life energy intertwines
Beautifully said. Thank you for the contribution.
What a tragedy. your poem is beautiful though.
Thank you. It is so tragic.
I love so much the articulation of your poem and the words.
You made me sad…
It has to happen sometimes….
Tragic photo, lovely poem.
Isn’t it? Thank you.
beautifully poignant. tragic…but if I had to go it would be in the arms of the man I loved.
If i was a hindu god, you would be hearing the sound of 20 hands clapping.
Moving message Jenn.
Thank you Jim 🙂
What a heart-wrenching photo. If the two lovers could ask for an epitaph, I’m not sure they could find more beautiful words.
Thank you. Too kind words.
I really feel bad about the bangladesh may God forgive the innocent souls!
Very sad 😦
Wow, this brought tears to my eyes. Sad, dark and lovely all at the same time.
Looking through all those photos made me instantly emotionally. How horrible it must be to walk about dead bodies searching for a familiar face hoping you won’t find it, but at the same time wanting to know where someone is.
Beautiful, and sad, and hopeful – love has so many faces.
They don’t look real.
