My Lyra - Khaye Ashley

Our eyes met under the light of stars

With your sparkle stares you captured my heart

Little did I know this would be the start of unending scars

Of the love we share that will forever be apart


We see each other after the sun sets

Your voice calling my name still plays to my ears

Spending time with you until the end of horizon will never be a regret

It was your love that change my fears


This my prayer in darkness

Please stay with me

Without you in my life there is emptiness

Your voice, your presence is my turning key

Without you I’m lost at sea

So please stay, stay with me


Remember those nights we’d lay on the grass

Stargazing the stars above us

Waiting for shooting stars to pass

Wishing that the universe will abide to us


I’m still here waiting every night

Hoping you’ll come back

But seems like this is a hopeless case

Of someone I will never be of sight

Our memories slowly fades to black

Fading that I can’t even feel your embrace


This my prayer in darkness

Please stay with me

Without you in my life there is emptiness

Your voice, your presence is my turning key

Without you I’m lost at sea

So please stay, stay with me


When will this waiting game come to an end?

Are you coming back?

I already finish counting all the stars

The scars are deeply down on me

Heavy heart, I fall out track

We all gonna hurt right now


This my prayer in darkness

Please stay with me

Without you in my life there is emptiness

Your voice, your presence is my turning key

Without you I’m lost at sea

Doors are not closing yet

For you my Lyra

So please stay, stay with me


Please give a detailed explanation about the meaning and main idea of this poem.:


The poem that I created tells about our loved ones who we lost at some point in our lives. Whether it be from death, heartbreak or end of relationships, it always leave some missing pieces in us. My poem is sending a message that there will always be hope, like the one in the poem who is waiting for his love to come back at the same place where they met. No matter how long we are apart from those people , there is always a possibility that we can be with them.


Please explain your writing and thought process regarding this poem.:


I wrote this poem for a competition in our school, and because I wrote it at 2am, my mind is not so creative in thinking a title. Our class name is Lyra so I just made it as a title for my poem. Lyra is actually a constellation and the whole thought of my poem has a relation to it, Lyra is a constellation and at the same time it was the narrator's nickname for his loved one.


Why did you choose to write this poem?:


It was for our school competition and the theme is something about love and I felt like I should express love through my own way.
