An Empty Heart

Written by: Sharon Ruebel


He came again as just before
a simple knock upon the door

no smiles or kisses did he place
a tortured look upon his face

i felt his absence standing there
the emptied heart i could not bear

so many words lay quiet and still
a hollow chest he would not fill

and what of love so fond and true
has time the bandit changed your view

a stranger stood before me then
last tragic scene when lovers end

are all forevers gone for good
an empty place where you once stood...
