Two Hearts Collide
I believe in love, God's greatest gift.
A priceless treasure within our heart.
Emotions, like the ocean tides, shift,
It must be cherished from the start.
Love was part of my life, for many years.
I assumed it endless, I assumed wrong.
I saw it being washed away by my tears.
I tried holding on, but I was not that strong.
Almost a lifetime of love was mine to share.
I was sure it was real, it was true.
I expected it would always be there,
for I had such faith in me and you.
I sadly discovered that love could bring pain.
That and fear nearly broke my will.
Could I survive this, see the sun rise again?
A mountain to climb, but unable to get up the hill.
The wounds are deep, but I am still here.
I finally let go as I watched myself bleed.
So much debris that I had to clear.
Keeping little, just what I would need.
Love is no longer found within me.
Though I yearn for it, it will be denied.
My soul knows that it will never be.
Lost forever is the magic, when two hearts collide.
