I couldnít count the times I stood with telephone in hand.
Finger dialing your number, thoughts I didnít understand.
I wish that I could turn back time, change the words we said.
Undo the damage thatís been done, where hurtful words have led.

I wish I had a crystal ball to see what futureís hold.
Then lovers, they could come to me and have their fortunes told.
So they would not be forced to feel the pain thatís in my heart.
They would know ahead of time that it was best to part.

I wish I had some magic when they didnít heed forewarning.
So I could fix their broken hearts, erase the pain by morning.
I wish I had wizard's power to make the pain unreal
or special herbs and potions to quickly make it heal.

But you see if I had all these things then I could use them now.
To change the way Iím feeling and erase the pain somehow.
Though I have no flowing cape or "Lucie the Great" sign.
The only magic that I know that can cure this pain...is time.

I wish I had the same things, Lucie. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could just fix broken hearts like that? This piece was very well written-rhymed and flowed well. Oh, and I like the graphic.

Lucie,
Well written, well rhymed.
We have no magic wand but
a good deed once in a while
sure helps.

Thank you for responding. I only wish there were a time limit on pain.

I think the worst injury is the self inflicted kick in the toosh. Hope things go better for you.

Well, if you don't have any Lucie the Great signs around, you can borrow one of mine. I have several..........because you are.

It is not better 'to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all'. You do very well speaking from the heart but no matter what they say memories do hurt and they don't go away with time, not even when your old like me.

Eden is that old-fashioned house
We dwell in every day
Without suspecting our abode
Until we drive away
- Emily Dickinson

Try smiling, it hurts less.

Lucie, memories only hurt if you hold on to the bad. Look back on the good times and the joy he brought into your life and move on. Every person we meet has the power to change our lives. Let it be for the positive.

Your poetry is engaging-- the fact that you post cartoons and color is another engaging feature.

Whatever, i don't spend enough time here to keep track.

You had me grinnin' for a while.

Maybe even now.

You definitely deserve praise on this one. This is a great piece and although I am young I know how it feels. You did a really good job conveying that feeling and I loved the wizard . I love reading your work, you are truly a great poet.
Lucie will be notified of replies
