A Poem Of Hope - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

I can't possibly erase you from my past
But it has become a clear fact,
That you are absolutely absent
In my now optimistic present...

The door of my broken heart
Will be permanently closed for you, soon...
Only you can be blamed
For us being so apart.
I gave you my love without shame
But you cause the mortal wound
And cowardly run away,
Leaving me behind living in darker days...

Knowing that nothing lasts forever,
My heart's wound will be completely healed
And I will rise again, wise and clever
With a new heart, as strong as steel...

After learning this painful lesson,
I will forget my past and move on,
Escaping from this horror prison
And joyfully sing a new song
While patiently awaiting
For the right one,
Any given day to come along
And thanking the Lord, of course!

    We learn from the past. Your poem is a real experience of hope after a great loss...
    not only death can wound a heart. A broken heart will rise again as your poem says...A poem full of hope to find another love....a heart becomes stronger...out of the past. Enjoy your NEW SONG. A fantastically written poem, Romeo. Keep-up and continue sharing with us your art. Virginia

    It is through broken hearts that God works his divine purpose, Romeo. I believe this. Happy Christmas and have a wonderful New Year. (Report)Reply

    Absolutely wonderful poem to hope for better days
    especailly after going through broken heart pains
    and also you thank the one whom gives you strength
    for better days and everything!
    Knowing that nothing lasts forever,
    My heart's wound will be completely healed
    And I will rise again, wise and clever
    With a new heart, as strong as steel...
    my favorite stanza :)
