In time....

This poem first appeared in my old blog, Simply Me. It was formerly titled, In the dying light of sun. Only when i re-post it here that i thought of changing the title. Why the change? Well, i want to be reminded, time and again, of what i gained out of the experience instead of what i lost.




in the dying light of the sun
against the streak of crimson sky
i watched as my love walked away
without even a backward glance

the pain! oh, the pain!
like a raw and expose sore that wouldn't heal
the tears i cried since that moment on
is a rapid river that drown my heart and all

the night somehow has lost its charm
as the moon and the stars beckons to enchant
the cascading emptiness that rush to my soul
as i thought of love i lost, then no more

even words failed to tempt
hollowed thoughts, devoid of means
it's been years since i picked a pen
as i couldn't bring myself to write once again

time and again i kept asking myself
if love is not enough, what there remains?
like a bolt of lightning i came to comprehend
a heart broken by love, in time, only love can mend

  5. revisiting what we created when we were in pain shows were we have come or how far we have traveled and how much we have learned. We almost never see it at the time.

  6. let's delete the sadness, undo for a better one, save love forever, just the save function, save as is redundant.

  7. You have a way with words eng...simply evocative words. "In time" is undoubtedly the best title for this.

    Have a nice day!

  8. You quote " a heart broken by love, only love can mend" !

    It sure does - it always will. The period in between though seems like eternity, the wait seems like endless. But once you get through it and look back, it is nothing but a learning experience.

    Eng you put me in reminiscing mode this morning! LOL I love your poem.

  11. Beautiful poem, eng.... LOVE will mend all broken hearts. When I got my divorce, I never thought I'd be able to love again. Then I met George (many years later). I found real LOVE for the FIRST time I think when I met George. Love is so powerful.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  12. hi Esmeralda Odette! just this morning somebody asked me- "if love never lasts forever, tell me, what's forever for?"...and i answered, true love, it never dies....

    it is amazing how love is captured in words of romantics like you...

  15. This touching poem reminds me of this song, Beautiful Girl by Jose Mari Chan... wherever you are
    I knew when I saw you, you had opened the door, I knew that I'd love again after a long, long while
    I'd love again...."

    Eng, open the door of the heart again so that love can come. Let this flower be cherised by one who know how to appreciate its beauty.
