Broken Dreams - Poem by Priscilla Kellebrew

Broken Dreams

There's an angel in Arkansas With broken dreams tonight Shattered just like china It's a terrible sight There's a cowboy in Arkansas Sittin' 'neath the starlight Downing shots of Vodka 'Cause he broke her heart tonight
Her teardrops fall and hit the floor As the words he said sinks in He should have told her long before The fires burned within She couldn't stand it anymore How in the world could this have been She turns and shuts the front door And reaches for the gin
He sits and looks up at the sky As the tears roll down his face He cries out 'Lord Why oh why, Did I break her warm embrace' He looks at the gun laying nearby And his heart begins to race He loved her so much he had to lie Now her wings he can't replace
There's an angel in Arkansas With broken dreams tonight Shattered just like china It's a terrible sight There's a cowboy in Arkansas Sittin' 'neath the starlight Downing shots of Vodka 'Cause he broke her heart tonight
He throws the gun across the field And she sets that bottle down True love can mend many things Even broken dreams

    He throws the gun across the field And she sets that bottle down True love can mend many things Even broken dreams.......... wonderful conclusion. when both of them can forgive and let the Ego gooooo, then it happens... a wonderful reunion based on forgiveness. thank you poetess (Report) Reply
