My Heart - The Sign Reads - Closed - Poem by Ruth warren

Tired of the waiting, tired of the pain,
tired of trying to love again. The waiting
is over, my heart condemned, the
sign reads 'CLOSED, never to let another
in.

No, you can't come in, my heart is in need
of repair, gonna be a long time before I
allow it to care. Been torn down, yet
broken it still stands, weak is it's
structure, as over the years, by
hurtful hand's.

These door I will close, to try to protect
all thats left inside, I will try to dry
the tears that it has cried. I will try to
mend it all alone, patch it up and
give it a home.

Man's tools will not touch this heart, for
it is by man's hands it fell apart.
Time is the only one whom can repair,
the broken pieces that lie inside, the sign
reads 'CLOSED', for it's spirit has died.
