Heartaches Will Never Last - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Heartaches will never last,
Nor will they forever stay;
Sorrow shall be replaced
By joy each passing day.

Once in a little while
Hearts may break and bleed;
It happens to anyone,
To call on God and plead.

The colors of life
Are not only lucid and bright;
But also dark, blue and gray,
To even the day and night.

Pain and hopelessness
Are only in one's mind;
They may be wiped out,
So leave them both behind.

No one else can cure
But you yourself alone;
Fervent devotional prayers
Shall take you from cry zone.

Smile the sweetest smile
And the world smiles too;
Cry the saddest moan,
You shall find it's only you.

Getting out of the blue
Is easier said than done;
But with God on your side
Impossible thing is none.

Forgiveness from the heart,
Forgetting things of the past;
You shall now realize,
Heartaches will never last.

    The colors of life
    Are not only lucid and bright;
    But also dark, blue and gray,
    To even the day and night.

    Bernare F. Asuncion,
    Counsel; How the world needs it! Encouragement, support. Life and growing old is not for the faint of heart. This work was a reminder to me of how short life is. Life span is for learning to love God, others and ourselves properly. Bless you sir and dont' stop the creative helping process...................Kathy

    Whatever comes our way, we have to face and endure it but we should not lose hope ever:
    Hearts may break and bleed / Pain and hopelessness /....Heartaches will never last / Nor will they forever stay. Congratulations for being selected for the day. Thanks.

    Brilliant and very touching poem, we know heartaches will eventually fade, but while we are experiencing them it feels like they're going to fill our hearts with pain and sadness forever. Really wonderful poem, love it! Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
