In Memory Of You

The soft voice with a story book in her hand

Always present in every night

The moon brighter to overcast my eyes

To keep me in dark of night

The forehead kisses

Give the last touches when I asleep

When I open my eyesI feel,, just in night, I hear the soft voice of you

You are the sunlight in my day

You are the one that makes trouble be gone

You are the words inside my song

You are the eyes that help me to see

She was there,,

The wind brings her soul in far away

I was alone to keep my sweet memories

Clotted longing through your shadow

This poetry uses personification figure it shown by “You are the sunlight in

A paradox is an apparent contradiction that is nevertheless somehow true


and also it may be either a situation or a statement.

1. Paradox The moon brighter to overcast my eyes to keep me in dark of


night in that line there is a contradictory between brighter and overcast.
It just reveals of imagination of the writer that something brighter is
contradicted with overcast.
2. Dramatic irony
Dramatic irony the discrepancy is not between what the speaker says and what
speaker means but it is between what the speaker says and what the poem
means. I take the example of dramatic irony from our poem in memory of
you, that my friend told you before, our poem described about tragedy in past
time, the memory of person who loved her mother and now it’s become the
sweet memories because she was pass away. The forehead kisses Give the
last touches when I asleep When I open my eyes I feel,, just in night, I hear
the soft voice of you She was there,, The wind brings her soul in far away I
was alone to keep my sweet memories Clotted longing through your shadow
For those stanza describe about the sorrowed condition where the someone
feel disappearance his mother and now just in his memory.

3. Situational irony

Situational irony is a style employed when the author creates a situation and
leads the reader to believe that a certain ending is expected, when the actual
ending is completely in contrast. In this part there’s an irony refers to the
contrast between what is expected and what actually occurs. Those describe
the happiness inside the sadness of in memory of you, because in first stanza
was described about the happiness of child who in every night in every day
mother always presents to give the smooth love but it is not in long time. You
are the sunlight in my day You are the one that makes trouble be gone You
are the words inside my song You are the eyes that help me to see She was
there,, The wind brings her soul in far away I was alone to keep my sweet
memories Clotted longing through your shadow

4. Verbal irony

Verbal irony as the figurative language of irony which often use in daily
language. Verbal irony it means that people say something which contradicts
with what they imply, for the example of verbal irony I take from song by
pink, the tittle I just guess I just lost my husband, i don’t know where he went
And i don’t need you, I’m having more fun, and now that we are done.
