Silence Of A Broken Heart Poem by Chris Embrick

Silence Of A Broken Heart

Rating: 5.0

With great anguish the day began
death severed love's embrace
a life of promises and plans
with one last breath time erased

With trembling hands she held him tight
down her cheeks the stinging tears
her closest friends turned from the sight
the pain much more than each could bear

Wedding bells were soon to ring
the satin gown draped across the bed
now, by his grave the mourner's sing
she wears a gown of black instead

Each night her pillow's wet with tears
the haunting dreams are slow to part
now in her eyes, the heartache still
the silence of a broken heart.

Thank you. A poet feels not only his/her pain but commiserates with others.

Thank you Rose. Sometimes we need to feel another's sadness to get past our own.
