Hope Gives New Heart

Hope Gives New Heart

I sat in pain
 looking in
Life of sad songs
loves laughing
Where once, once
we did belong
Starry nights aflame
sexual delights
my loss, my blame
sad is the song
Dreams now sing
of sad relief
Casting doubts
against the storm
misery eats my grief

My defeated soul
sleeping in tears
no promises come, 
none for years
Yet hope stirs its
birthing pains now
eating into my heart

Can your love
bring its glory
A message sent
in my last dream
screamed lovers story,
another sweet start
hope gives new heart.....

    Robert, A quite wonderful older poem here (I noticed by the date at the end.) This is a sad poem, but "Hope" does spring eternal my friend. I'll leave you with a "7" and my appreciation in posting this fine write. Quite late here in Germany and so I'm signing off now. Cheers and Spill Ink!! Gary
