Rookie (1987 March 25 / Cape Town)

A day of heartbreak


A simple statement
Just a few words long
Cut like a knife
And now everything's wrong



It started with a deep breath
The words then followed

Made shattered dreams

Now everything's hollowed



She kept it in

The pain, heartache and fears

Rest her head and prayed

Tomorrow there would be no tears



Soon the sun rose

Bringing a new day

Smiling

She locked her fears away



Keeping busy

Pushing out the thought

Watching the clock

Waiting to see what time brought



Hours passed by

Time will soon tell

Has her heart grown stronger

And out of love fell



The clock has struck

And so it seems

She's out of luck

And weak



Not a word was sent

Not a word was heard

Staring at his name

Her eyes teared



Pushing through her dark cloud

Setting aside fears

Needing to hear his voice

Wiping away tears



With a simple 'hi'

Relief washed over her

With a sigh

Her pain fades away



After a day of uncertainty

Heartache & pain

Still in love it seems

With no disdain

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
