Unbreaking His Heart

For as long as he could remember

she had been a part

of the life he lead

and from friendship

there was love

suddenly she was his day and night

always there and always dear

when she was far from him

he wrote her poetry

that expressed his feelings

to be sure she knew how much he cared

it was upon a day

when he saw that she

seemed to drift far from him

her thoughts were not with their love

and he wondered if it was his fault

the words of love were there

only they seemed empty

as if picked up by the wind

and sent drifting through the air

as much as he wanted things

to be the same

even his poetry no longer

seemed to warm her heart

before he knew it

one day she went away

never with him had she meant to stay

and now he was left alone

with thoughts and memories

of a love that he seemed not to own

through sleepless nights he wrote

verse after verse of the love he felt

then armed with his words

and wildflowers that she loved

he went in search of her

to show her how much he loved her

to take her in his arms

and never to let her go

he found her by the fountain in the park

the place they both loved

to sit side by side

to dream, to drift

to just be happy and in love

he sat down beside her

placing the wildflowers in her arms

her brightest smile

was the welcome he had hoped for

for as much as she had doubted

the precious love they shared

she was half not whole

if she was without him

then he began to read

the poetry he had written

and when the final words

were taken by the spring breezes

he had unbroken his heart

mended hers

and together they had found

a forever kind of love

Rasma, the video is unavailable, so the note says. It's not important. Your poetry is beautiful without music. I loved the line, " Picked up by the wind and sent drifting through the air. "

Sorry for the late response. It is that April 30 day poetry challenge that keeps me a bit behind.

Thank you Blossom.

Thank you Genna. Glad you enjoyed the song.

Thank you Manatita.

I love a happy ending! You've also chosen one of my favorite Bee Gees songs.

Happy endings are the best and glad you enjoyed the song Shauna. Perhaps you can answer one question - I am in the process of cleaning up my hubs. Deleting most everything from way back in 2011, 2012 and 2013 at present. I have come to realize that I can rework and revamp many of my poem except for the narrative ones. I feel they do and have done well on HubPages but I don't know if they'll do as well on other poetic pages. What do you think? The older hubs are just sitting there and are not even featured.

Rasma, I think John (Jodah) has started a new site for poetry and creative writing. If I were you, I'd Google "poetry websites" and see what comes up. See how many page views they have, etc. and test the waters with your own work. HP doesn't seem to be a good forum for poets. I've posted a few here myself. They did well when I first posted, but haven't seen much traffic after that. Although, to be honest, I haven't checked the titles to see how many total page views they've gotten. I'll have to try to remember to do that.

Anyway, check with John to see if his site is up and how it's doing. Then go to Uncle Google. I think that may be your best bet in getting traffic. Maybe you'll even happen upon a site that pays.

Thank you Shauna. If the site is Creative Exiles I have joined and I love it there. In the meantime I will delete as much as I can from my old material here and then make my final decision. Perhaps for awhile I will post some other things here like some more musical hubs. Have a great day.
