A Heart So Fragile

Updated on March 27, 2014

Thanks for the inspiration to Anita Lesic. She wrote a lovely love poem which reminded me of a Bing Crosby song. When she responded to my comment and knew the words to that lovely song it was pure inspiration. Here is the link to her poem:

It was so fragile

Put together

Time and time again

It was so fragile

That it seemed to barely beat

It had been battered

Then shattered

And it appeared that just perhaps

This time it would never mend

It was then that he stepped in

The tall stranger

With the piercing eyes

And the mystic smile

And he saw her

And knew right away

That this was one heart

He wanted to save

Like a summer flower

That had been caught unawares

By autumn breezes

Wilted and so very sad

Her eyes no longer

Sparkling and clear

Glistening with so many tears

Her laughter long faded

Now only quiet sighs

And yes, oh yes, that fragile heart

He approached her

And she looked wary

Their romance began

On a spring morning

Wet with the dew

Shining on the first daffodils

When her hand slipped into his

He smiled so very brightly

Miracles do happen

Even to hearts

That have been left crushed

After love has gone away

He watched her

Begin to bloom that spring

And could tell

That at last her heart was beating

By the summer she was his

Once again a flower

In full bloom

They danced that summer

Oh, how they danced

And by her very brilliant smile

He knew at last

That her once fragile heart

Was his to have and to hold

And he knew

That it would forever be

His most prized treasure

Her love he’d keep forever

      Daffodils are sunny flowers. Bing has great music. Interesting about his wife. I too would have thought that creepy. Perhaps wax kept her together Jackie.

      Glad you enjoyed this Blossom.

      Glad you enjoyed this Manatita. Peace to you too.

      Glad you enjoyed this Ruby.

      Glad you enjoyed this Ann. The Bing Crosby song comes from a musical Holiday Inn.

      Wow, that was wonderful! Hearts healed by patience and love - what could be better? And I had never heard the song before and I thought I knew everything Bing Crosby sang!

      We both wrote of daffodils today! I like old Bing, saw his wife about 15 years ago and she looked like a wax doll. A little creepy.
