Broken Heart Pieces - Poem by Meriam Joseph

Broken heart pieces scattered everywhere
Like a rose petal floating in mid air.
Where can I find them? , In the present or in a fair?

A broken heart piece did I find near my grandpa's chair,
Guess he had trouble with his children or maybe with his pair,
Another one found I, when I wrote my first book,
Wasn't satisfied with what the story looked to those big buffs.

Why are they everywhere?
I even found them in space,
Near the soul of that dog named Laika,
The first one to escape the cruel face.

I even found them under water,
Near those people thought who their mission was a flop,
Why are hearts always broken?
Can't they stick together even for a blink of an eye?

Broken hearts are found, near those who work under the sun,
They had all those tough times still works they like a healthy bun.
Broken hearts did find I, near those poor afflicted ones,
What's going to happen to them? I wonder at times,
But no answer floats to get the right sum.

Broken Hearts come near me, but there's always a healing touch,
Cause if love is lost, never bend your head in sadness, instead,
Look up into heaven for that's where your broken heart can be sent to
heal forever.

    Broken Heart Pieces expresses a deep understanding of pain and suffering among humans no matter what age or state of life. Only Heaven can cure a broken heart. Nothing on earth can change the fact that if we live and love we will suffer broken heartness. This poet has a very promising future as a writer. For 11 yrs of age, she has a wonderful insight into human suffering. Dealing with the heart is a very difficult. She realizes that heart break is everywhere no matter the day, time, century or person. A worthy read. (Report)Reply
