Finding Love Again

Your heart feels old and tired
it’s cried a river...a flood
bedraggled, hurt and weary
stomped and dragged through mud

It’s seen the ebb and flow of life
and watched as you grew strong
step by step rebuilding
a life where you belong

Budding new relationships
built on solid ground
people who believe in you
and the new life you have found

Your heart is strong and growing
new worlds to explore
you’ll know your heart is ready
when finding love once more

You’re wiser and more careful
still smiling through the scars
a journey just beginning
finding love amongst the stars.

For Karin, finding love again...

    ps Forgot to tell you, I wish MY cat was like the one in my cat poem too. The one that died was the sweetie that is described in my poem. My two replacement cats, just barely as nice!! LUv, andrea

    It was so kind of you to offer such encouragement to Karin, Trudy. When a love is lost, people need support and motivation to rebuild their lives. You have come through big time for your friend. God bless you. Wonderful, inspiring poem! Love, Carolyn
