BREAK UP

Updated: Mar 17, 2021


Sadly,

Heart-broken,

I lay in my bed,

Quietly,

Alone,

Late-night,

Grieving.


I am sad

And yet,

Somehow glad,

Maby it wasn’t,

Meant to be.

Did I break up with he,

Or he with me?


Laying quietly,

With reddened,

Tear-soaked pillowed eyes,

Then,

Out from the Still,

A voice says maby,

Just maby,

It wasn’t meant to be.


With hope rekindled,

In my heart,

I take a knee,

I have Faith in Thee,

And ask God, Jesus,

From above,

Oh! I Hope,

Do send me someone,

Someone

To Love❤️



from “Poetry on My Mind,” p91


Author’s Note: The Poem is of Faith, Hope and Love - the three virtues of the human existence. I composed it looking into the future of a young grandchild girl in love, whom, late-night, I had texted to sleep, from afar, with ne’er a hint of break-up. And somehow out of nowhere during our texting, it consumed me - “What will become of love.“ A searching. Some call it chance, others fate, still others coincidence. I call it Serendipity, the hand of God in our existence, intervening as if we were His only child, tending to us in every moment, sometimes without us knowing, fulfilling our life with grace and guidance. Listen to Him. Thank God for God!


PS: Breton, albeit‘s serendipitous adieu, Have no fear this was written pre you😎

Beautifully written with such an accurate representation of the Lord's nearness to the broken hearted. I praise Him for His sweet stirring of the Holy Spirit within your heart and your mind to capture this moment before He revealed His plan to us.

Love: God "tending to us in every moment," when, so many times we feel very alone.

Awesome the way you connect with your family and all of creation. You take me to a higher level of "seeing" things. Love your work. Keep writing.

Mine too. This and Hayden were “uncanny prophecies.” My fav photo is Merry Mary. I think my most pronounced was Continental Miracle and my most tearful was The Story Teller Fella. Most heartfelt pride is She Writes With Me. The Moon has my best last-two-lines. Thanksgiving was a feast. Christmas was a frenzy of poetry. My best speech was Colonel Tenbrunsel. Winter are some of my best poems. Best Tale is “Hey Bear!” Short and sweet: Leafy, Seven, The Road Least Traveled. Most risqué - My Heart❤️

Barbara, Kevin & Erin - Thank y’all for taking the time to comment. Knowing people read, understand, are inspired and get my writings, encourages me to write. “Without feedback from his readers, the writer stumbles.” Frost
