A Broken Heart

How do you mend, a broken
heart? Where do you begin
and where do you start? How
do you face another day? What
do you do and what do you say?
It's never easy, getting back into
the swing, there's no doubt, it will
take it's toll. You have to be strong
and forge ahead, then, things will
start to roll. Just give it plenty of
time, as others have done before.
Then you'll be ready to start again
and open, another door!

    A broken heart needs some time to heal. It can
    not happen all in a day, month or even a year.
    Love will come again! Enjoyed.

    Beautiful poem filled with positivity. True said broken heart takes a time to mend, but if one tries a new door is sure to open. Loved reading it. ++10

    Like the poem, the idea of mending a broke heart is not new, but you have worked this with care.

    these lines are expertly written
    it is hard to move out of the pain
