cry me a river

two things i've given my heart to
two things for which i've cried
my dear dear love april
and my little dog that died
tears are sometimes expected
but really somewhat a surprise
the secret of how much you love someone
are hidden in the eye's

    Yes the eyes are loves meter if you know how to read them in states other than just full blown love. What really hurts is when they show you that love is dieing and the mouth won't tell you why. Huggs TLee

    Sweet friend, you have had so many struggles in the past year and are always in my prayers. I still have that photo of you with the dog. Very provocative last two lines. Gives us a lot to ponder. Beautiful write, John! Love, Carolyn

    Hi John, such a hurt in this, it is very painful to lose what you love and sometimes it feels like healing is so far away. Also I've found replacements are never the same.

    I have lost my dog as well and know how you feel. Your poem was very emotional and a great write. Hope you had a wonderful Easter Cory

    John, so sorry I misunderstood your comment. I get confrontational comments from other poets once in a while about my christian beliefs. I try to respond with respect. You are so right, Jesus did prove it Easter morning! Happy Easter to you, Rhonda :)
