Tears of the Broken

Introduction: At some point of our lives, someone close to us departs off to the next
phase. We think of the good times and try not to think the bad; but sometimes it haunts us
back to how we responded in a naive way for our juvenile wishes. And sometimes we see them
in our dreams at the utmost optimism and glory. But the fact that we get to realize what
we did back then may have cherished and broken their souls in some ways, we always wonder
if we could alter the deeds that wounded their affection in our times of immaturity…And
pray that we get a second chance to do so for our next life. *the first two lines have some inspiration from another piece*

Even if our hearts were as strong as a storm, we’d still feel a little bit sad Knowing that we’ve lost our grandfather, our friend, our dad. For so many years, we’ve felt their presence In so many ways, we’ve felt complete, But truly, even if we deny – We sometimes skip a heartbeat. Our lives are nothing but their memories and their art, Orbiting us each day, reminding us of who we are Where we stand and to whom we belong, We pray and cry up oceans for them night after night Praying to be together just one more time, in the worlds of light. But yes you are so fortunate, that you got to leave, You’ve made it to the greater step, I pray for us to meet. May your soul be blessed and may it shine brighter than the sun, Again and again ‘I love you’ it’s not a lie, I may not have said it that much But I hope you knew inside, even if I may have been unkind as such Nothing is left for us to do but feel the tears stream down our eyes For we, once in a while have broken their hearts with one or two lies, Their face glows and vividly fades away from our dreams those nights That’s when we fall, fall down to our knees, pray for we could have changed The ways we reacted back in those days. Thoughts of those moments, thoughts of their sorrow smile Now makes us realize how we never cared, For that to overcome, we treasure the good times we’ve shared, The times we’ve heard them say “You’ve made me proud” The times we’ve felt them lay their hands, oh so be crowned. Their tender touch, their forgiveness Their blessings for us and their happiness, We pray to feel it all again Bring it all again, To the eternal life, after this time.

    I liked the thoughts that you put into the poem.But......Maybe you should put that intro into the poem it self somehow?I feel the poem and the heart you put into it!That was great!But alot of people don't like intro's.

    Yes they love intro's. It gives a much clearer thought to fellow readers who don't even get the simplest poem without an explanation and my intro's satisfy that inquiry, not everyone is Shakespeare you know. I'm sure you got much greater experience than me in this but this is how I do what I do. you should know better than anyone that every1's got their own different style... Thanks for your honest opinion btw!

    There is no such thing as bad or good poetry. All poetry is perfect as long as it comes from the heart. I enjoyed. Dana'lynn

    if it needs an introduction. it has failed already. it's not poetry but a sermon.

    I respect your criticism, honesty is a great thing i look in a person and for you my poems may not work, but there's a whole world out there who appreciates them. And I'm not sorry for that...I'm glad they love it.
