Silver lining

 No words can blunt the pain of a broken heart
Though dulcet melodies may sooth it for a while
Much more than tears dost thou impart
With time  once more to see your golden smile

How then can thee  revive thy  broken dreams
Doth sorrow's weight besiege thy soul?
Lo, the weight is lighter than it seems
With time the silver lining gleams

But who can mend a broken soul?
What unseen force can repair the inner core
He who dwells on high can make you whole
Like diamonds,  your light will shine once more

And when the silence is broken by thy thoughts
Your spirit will rise above the dreams you sought

    I like how you mixed the diamonds into this one, and ending on a positive note! reminded me of the Bee Gees song.
