Love’s Lesson

So deep our hurt, so painful our tears

When love’s loss and heartbreak enter our years

Torn from our other, no surgeon’s blade cleaved

This bloody, wounded sorrow our Spirit’s bereaved.

Some cast about in anger and shame

A weapon! A dagger! The other’s too blame!

With vengeance and fear, we lash out to harm

But our own hearts we pierce, revenge is no balm.

But wait just a while, this sorrow endure

Learn the lesson, and hope, and others will near

And soon love’s laughter will again touch your soul

And joy on life’s wonders, once more make you whole.

a poem for my dear friend Cindy, after she had her heart broken for the very first time – May2006
