"A heart that once was made of stone"

I once felt a heart,
That made my soul cry,
A love so beautiful,
It could never die.

I once held a hand,
That broke down my walls,
Discouraged my ignorance,
Challenged my flaws.

I once heard a whisper,
That I thought was in vain,
Still it crept into my dreams,
Again and again.

I once gave a heart,
That collapsed underneath,
The lies and the pain,
That were handed to me.

I once wished away,
The pain in my soul,
To afraid to ask,
What I already know.

I once said goodbye,
To the sweetest pain,
That made me blind yet beautiful,
With only a name.

I once convinced myself,
That it was time to let go,
Of a fragrant desire,
That I let myself show.

I once touched a heart,
That made my soul cry,
The heart of stone that I feared,
Was no ones but mine.

You once forgot,
What pain you caused?
To my life and world,
Shattered and paused.

You once made me whole,
To my own dismay,
I loved you enough,
To ask you to stay.

A heart of stone,
Broken in two,
Owned by to lovers,
My love, me and you.

Heat melts away the thickest of ice.
a lot of love can warm up the coldest of hearts.
This is a wonderful poem!

Hey there sis, this is one of my favorites-HUN!!(know you hate that word ) I'm glad that you have forgiveness in your heart, I'm not sure that I could do it...But seeing that you're so happy now, I guess I forgive him too!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Sorry i missed this poem, but better late then never

Very well written and such wise words  
I wonder does love makes us wise?  
And is this all part of life
Thank's amber
way cool  


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Amber: Sad thoughts here but I like the way you told your sister you love her..

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Amber...what well written words expressing pain, fear and love. I wrote a poem of the same title for another poet here on the site a while back, I think it's very fitting here.

Heart Of Stone

She said she had a “heart of stone”
“Incapable of feeling”
But I saw just a heart of gold
Scarred and slowly healing

“Incapable of love,” she said
This wondrous caring soul
I simply saw a broken life
Struggling to be whole

“How could he take this all from me”
She says with teary eyes
A love once freely given
Now disabled by his lies

I look at her and I can see
My life not long ago
Before I learned to take a risk
And let my feelings show

A heart of stone? Oh maybe so
On this I’ll call her bluff
Her heart indeed it is a stone
A diamond in the rough

Amber, very well written and simply expressed. Am glad to know that love between sisters was not lost either. Very enjoyable read.
