Time Heals All Things - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

She waited in the room
flowers and champagne
Candles glowing
table set for two
And when the telephone rang
it took her by surprise
Felt every sudden beat of her heart
as her voice caught
held tightly within like her last breath
The words she heard
tore her whole world apart
just like Romeo to Juliet

It was the last thing on her mind
never would have imagined a day like today
Was it all just one big lie
a joke played out in bad taste
They said that he never felt a thing
yet here she is
down on her knees
And as tears cascade down
everything shatters before her eyes
forever wasn't suppose to be this way

Photographs fade
dust settles on the windowpane
Echoing deep in her broken heart
every moment that can never be reborn
Laying on the bedroom floor
no strength to carry on
Wrapped up within his loving arms
isn't that what dreams are for
Because you never know
when two becomes undone
leaving one in the emptiness of what once was

She waited in the room
flowers and paslm
Family and friends
in just whisper--time heals all things.....
