On our knees by Liyona

on a doorstep

just down the lane

my hand in

yours and I

thanked God for


on our knees

just hoping for a

way to live

more moments


I wanted to

love you.

on your bed

there you lay with

flowers on your


I whispered to

the stars above

“why did you

have to leave?”

This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge at found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “ On our knees”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Tune in tomorrow to see the new challenge for this week! Photo by Lucaxx Freire on Unsplash


Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
