The story behind the poem
AURORA is a poem about the loss of
a very, very dear person in life - someone considered to be more
than a best friend, rather a soul-mate. Perhaps in understanding the
poem, one needs to consider the above as the other half of
themselves. The loss is so deep and great that throughout life one
can never be truly happy, optimistic or hopeful again. Aurora is
crying for her beloved for it is upon his sudden death that her life
is also taken away as swiftly and sweetly as it was given. Her
paradise is gone.
