#NaPoWriMo Day 30: Finish Line.

Just as the riverbeds dry up
Only to come back as rain,
As long as the sea is bound
To wash up on the sand
And stars are above you,
We will meet again,
Walk hand-in-hand,
Down the winding lane.

As long as you and I exist,
We’re bound to cross paths someday;
I hate to part, but I’ll hold you to it,
Back to each other, we shall find a way.
Every now and then, for a while,
Though we might wander astray,
We can’t fight what’s destined, it’s fate,
We can’t be apart, come what may.

You’re a part of me,
You have always been,
And every emotion inside me
Threatens to burst from within.
The end of a chapter this may be,
But I’ll always have another written,
So, a goodbye, this doesn’t have to be,
For who knows what new story I’d spin?

Bittersweet endings and farewells,
I never was any good at them;
How I am torn, how can I tell?
All I have is a mind so numb.
This is yet another end,
Tomorrow, the sun shall rise again,
And with it, so shall I,
I will create, I will write again.

As sure as the sun rises each dawn,
I go back to my pen each time,
The poet in me keeps trudging on,
In a quest to quench this thirst of mine.
So, when the time comes and I’m long gone,
All I’ll leave behind are my rhymes,
For I keep going back to writing my songs,
All I shall do until I’ve crossed the finish line.

I can’t believe I made it to another 30 days of poetry! Today’s prompt was something that keeps returning, and all my life, I have found myself walking back to writing because it’s where my heart truly lies. Over my 22 years of life, that has always been constant. It seemed like a fitting end to 30 days of NaPoWriMo. Thanks to everyone who kept sending me words of love and encouragement throughout. It is what keeps an artist going, apart from the passion that springs from within our souls. Until my next poem! Xx
