Goodbye Heartache...Hello Love

One simple word was never heard
Though I whispered it one day
And in your eyes, I read the lies
As you turned and walked away

One sad goodbye, ďIíll never try
To love again,Ē I said
I trusted you, thatís all I knew
And you left me there for dead

One heart now stone, once yours to own
Rock solid to the core
I sadly grieved, justly believed
That I would love no more


       ~*~*~*~*~*~*~

One simple word was all I heard
Whispered soft to me one day
And in his eyes, I saw no lies
As he turned and came my way

One brief hello, How could I know
That once again Iíd feel
Trust set me free and now I see
With time, all wounds can heal

One beating heart, one brand new start
A chance to live again
Iím ready now, just show me how
To let true love begin


†To love means never to be afraid of the windstorms of life: should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Two beautiful poems, Ruth! Time does heal all wounds. Sometimes it just takes longer than we would like!

Hoot:  Once again, you take my breath away - what a wonderful story of loss and renewal, and so elegantly told!

I always want to help others up... but I ever kick against the pricks if it's myself.

I found this very enjoyable.  I love the change in hue from that of one being blue to that of one being on fire.

No doubt about it....Time does wound all heels! Comings and goings - hellos and goodbyes - all a part of life as we know it. Nice writing, Ruth.
