Scars of the Heart

Scars of the Heart

At times it seems like no relief
We can suffer long with our grief

Will the heart ever mend
Will the pain ever end

The tears come from my eyes
But it’s my heart that cries

People ask how am I 
They would know if they see me cry

From when my wife passed 
I have scars of the heart that will last

My heart may heal after time goes by
The scars of my heart will be till I die

    A fine descriptive set of rhyming couplets. Good work here.
