I cried in her garden (For my friend Nurul)

the morning was bright
the breeze was cool and gentle
many would say it was a beautiful day

a fountain was in the corner
the sound of gushing water was relaxing
the sight and sound were captivating

I sat at the table
tea was served promptly
warm with biscuits

but I, I was grieving
filled with so much sadness
and then, I cried in her garden

It has been a while since I drop by... I love the poet. Somehow describe my feelings of what I am facing at the office right now.

Dear Anakmami,
Sometimes, it is best to just show our true feelings. Even if its only to ourselves....
