Healing Heart…

Apart, each day my heart would

bleed, you were a world away,

I prayed for God to bring you

back to me.  My love for you grew

And grew, steadfast and true.

The call was grave, I should have

known, all too soon I was alone.

faith wane, emotions would rise and

fall, you said that I must accept,

that you might not return at all.

My lonely heart crumbling in remorse,

you had set sail on a separate course.

I roam a house where passion lived,

your words to me, you had no more

to give.

I faced our friends with mounting shame,

they would not believe that I was not

the blame.  Yet, I had nothing to prove,

it was you, not I, whose love had been

removed.

She could never love you the same as

I, no not in a thousand years, though

she may try.  Yet, after all these years I

am on my own, sad, heartbroken and

alone.

Hold on dear heart I tried to persuade,

there will be other nights and other

days.  I will find love from happier

men, who will bring ecstasy when our

hearts blend.

Therefore, my far away love, my world did

not end, I flourish, I have new friends.

I am sorry to hear that she left you for

another, yet I am blessed, while you now

live in your self-made world of loneliness

  1. Did you write this with me in mind Ann? Resonates totally except the good bit at the end, not quite there yet and he’s still with his ‘soulmate’ and me, lonely cradling fractured heart.
