Reasoning With Time - Poem by Jacqui Broad

Give me a reason for singing,
And I'll sing right through the night.
Give me a reason for clinging,
And I'll hold you, oh so tight.
Have you heard a lark's song go silent?
There's no more reason to sing.
Have you heard that life is violent?
Who can fly with a broken wing?
What once was happiness, has turned to a sad song.
What's supposed to come out as pure, comes out as a croak.
Give me the reason why things go wrong.
Show me the magic that wears a hat and a cloak.
Silent the bird watches from the branches of a tree.
Taking time to heal, she'll spread her wings and fly free...

    I don't for whom you have written this poem: May be you are questioning the lard of fate? May be you are question your own Indian dove? but I truly feel that spring season is wating for you to give the reason what went wrong? May Nov/2012 will give you new life! Who know my bowl of cherries.....................

    To feel all the pain and emotion hits you hard,
    But it does get better. Then you open your wings
    and fly. A great poem.
