Realignment of a broken heart



Such a beautiful soul

Extremely willing and free

Eager to proclaim his love

As he got down on one knee


Yet her poor fragile heart

Remained broken apart

The pieces lay scattered

Like a crushed work of art


Though she tried to say yes

She was unable to speak

Though she knew that without him

Her life would be bleak


She sought inner strength

Which she carried deep within

And tried in earnest to explain

Not knowing where to begin


And as he held out his hand

Seeking the warmth of hers

His bright smile faded

As he listened to her words


Dismayed by the rejection

Of his one true love

He looked to the heavens

Seeking answers from above


And as his heartfelt pleas

For a response were sent

He sat there in anguish

With a look of regret


She quietly carried

Herself far away

Unsure of her actions

Her mind in complete disarray


She desperately wondered

If she had made the right choice

This really should have been

A day to rejoice


Still completely unsure

She desperately needed to know

Her heart had wanted to stay

Yet her head had told her to go


She stayed as far away as she could

Allowing time to pass by

Wondering why her choice

Seemed to only make her cry


The more she thought

The more confused she became

Until one day she found herself

Finally unable to abstain


She had to go back

To the love she had left

So very ill without him

She felt completely bereft


So eventually one day

She knocked on his door

Taken aback by her presence

He nearly landed on the floor


Tears filled his eyes

Waiting a lifetime for this day

It was what he had prayed for

The entire time she was away


He opened his arms wide

To embrace her unexpected return

His heart filled with tremendous relief

Realizing his love had not been spurned


Together they finally became one

Happier than most could ever be

It just took time and patience

For her heart and head to finally agree
