The Broken Hearted - Poem by Stephen Katona

Then in a clearing those broken hearted met,
So full they all seemed of regret.
They looked each other in the eye,
Life had made them want to die,
Tears showed they could understand,
As they took each other by the hand.
At first it seemed to take a while,
Then the first face began to smile.

    The hope only the heart can fathom and the love only a smile can portray! ! It's hope and love that embraced in the holding of hands and crossed over to more happier lands... xxx ChB (Report) Reply

    Smile is infectious! Now the smile will pass from face to face.....! The knowledge that there are people who understand us itself will alleviate our pain! A cute little write, Stephen! (Report) Reply

    My poem did seem unfinished, and this is a perfect ending to it - a happy ending. Everyone loves a happy ending. Of course, now I'll expect you to provide a happy ending for all my poems, ha. (Report) Reply
