Is it true? Life goes on? Why?
Who told you? Must it be?
Do you care? I’m stuck! Totally!
Aware! There’s a hole in my heart!
Can’t seem to fill it up! Must I?
Can I leave it alone? Will it heal
… on it’s own? Can’t be sure!
But it’s happened before! Not as deep
… as this hurt! I must confess!
But … yes … my heart is blessed!
Why? Because of the one who left!
For every hurt … a flower grew
And blessed me … forever … anew!
