Turn Of Tide.

This is taken from a poetry book written by Shabeeh Haider. I think it is truly wonderful.

TURN OF TIDE

There is no joy the world can give; like that it takes away,
And now I know Lord Byron, what truth you wrote that day.
You’ll meet the person you loved, in that very, very place,
But the joy of days gone past, these days cannot replace.

The spark you lit inside my heart, has died with years of pain.
The love that flowed inside my veins, will no more flow again.
In days gone by, each time I looked, you took my breath away,
And the fire in my soul, it does not burn today.

Eyes full of tears, I held your hand, I said that I would die,
You said that people always part; just give your life a try.
You turned away and as you left, that hurt was something new,
In life, no one should feel that pain, O Lord I pray to you,

Years and years have passed us by; I’m not what I had been,
How I built my life again, if only you had seen,
And now you clasp my hand and say, without me you will die,
I turn away and say to you, please give your life a try.

(From The Book, A VAGABOND HEART, by Shabeeh Haider)

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
