Heaven Sent Love

Updated on March 12, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia with my hubby, Martin and cat Sid.

Her broken heart had mended,

it had been crushed and dented.

Finally stepping out of her shell,

she was now ready for a new love.

Still when the snowflakes swirled about

or the rain came pouring down,

it still brought a sad frown,

with remembrances of the many tears,

that had been shed.

So the seasons came and went,

while she kept vigil,

wishing upon the stars at night,

looking up toward the heavens,

during the day,

knowing that somewhere,

beyond the clouds,

her guardian angels kept watch.

Life that had been so extraordinary,

while the glow of love surrounded,

had now taken less bolder colors

and life simply sailed on.

Her heart started singing,

lonely melodies,

longing for a true love,

to come her way.

She wondered how long,

it would be before,

the angels finally,

offered her a love,

that was truly heaven sent.

In the lonely nights,

she had gone through her souvenirs,

tossing away all the memories,

that came with many tears.

Her heart had many desires,

that had been stoked with love’s fires,

leaving behind only ashes,

finally blown away,

by the wind.

It was upon a stormy day,

while she sat lost in thought,

in the park by a gray lake,

reflected by the dark clouds above,

that unexpectedly she met,

with a startled pair of eyes.

Standing upon the shore,

across the way,

they were both mesmerized.

Suddenly the dark clouds parted,

sunrays came streaming through.

Before she knew it,

he was there beside her,

truly a love that was heaven sent.

As they gazed at one another,

she looked up toward the heavens,

her smile outshone the sun

and she knew he was the love she had been waiting for.

Together now their hearts with gladness,

beat as one,

it was the start of a true love,

a love that was heaven sent.

      Beautiful poetry describing the painful experiences of a broken heart waiting patiently and finding the true love again that has been gifted from heaven as a reward for all her endurance of the painful life in silent tears.

      Your poems are so appealing and piercing into the deepest and innermost emotions of the heart.

      Wish you my hearty congratulations on the completion of the 7th anniversary at HubPages.

      Very sweet. Patience and faith will pay off if we don't rush the process.

      I love the message, as always. Love will find us when the time is right. I certainly did with me, and I've never been happier.

      Happy March, Rasma! Spring is almost here!

      What a lovely, positive poem. The long wait and the trust that a new true love would really arrive was eventually rewarded.

      I apologize for the late reply. Suddenly it was March and I realized there was a lot of organizing to be done for spring cleaning so now I finally have a chance to get online and catch up. Hope you're all having an inspirational week.

      Thank you so much Venkatachari. Glad you like my poetry. Thank you for the congrats. So far it certainly has been some journey.

      Thank you Chris.

      Thank you Bill. Happy March to you too. Been falling way behind because with spring also comes spring cleaning. Sid is once again king of the garden basking in the sunshine. I managed to post one article about my dad in NIUME. Here is a link and will do a second one today of course I have to check how interested people are in reading these.

      Rasma, this is such a hopeful poem. I've, frankly, given up on finding true love. Maybe it will find me one day.....
