A Drop In The Ocean Of Love. - Poem by Colleen Wright

To have waited for so long to nourish one's hungry heart
with love, and to find that all too soon it tears you apart,
as what you had found came for just a short while
and quickly went without words, not even a smile.

'A Drop in the Ocean' is my new poem for the day,
and so ruefully and reluctantly to you dare to I say,
that life's experiences can be not always be good,
and sadly we must accept, and continue we should.

Yesterday has been, left it's imprints and gone,
and tomorrow we will sing a bright new song.
We will live to love and laugh, yet once again,
and walk happily through warm winds and rain.

    I love the positivity at the end of the poems that nomatter how bad life hits, we still need to pick up the pieces and move on happily with positive energy.
    remember it could have been worse

    with love from phumudzo
