! Tomorrow Is Another Day - Poem by Linda Ori

I turn around and walk away -
Tomorrow is another day,
The past is done, I've closed the book,
I'll never take another look;
You've had your fun, you played your part,
You stole my love then broke my heart
So easily without a care,
How could you leave me standing there?
I thought 'twas sadness in your eyes,
I couldn't see through your disguise,
I should have known you were untrue -
I was in love, why weren't you?
Perhaps I've learned the sorry truth
I should have listened in my youth,
A broken heart will surely mend -
Some loves will last, and some will end,
And I will play the game again
Because I know one day I'll win,
But now I turn and walk away.............
Tomorrow is another day.

    I gave this one an 8 as well. Another recommendation. The rhymes were more
    simple in this poem and therefore the poem itself was, I thought at least, a
    little less than it might have been. The sentiment seemed to be less intense
    than it needed to be. Other than that, I found nothing to find fault with.

    Is life simply a quest for the unattainable? And day! (Report) Reply

    'A broken heart will surely mend -
    Some loves will last, and some will end,
    And I will play the game again
    Because I know one day I'll win'

    life is essentially a love game...the lines above give the basic rule for playing that game...the poem declares brave optimism

    Tomorrow is another day, 'tis exactly as you say *10*! !
    The past, now you have closed the book
    Tomorrow you'll take a closer look
    Deeply Into your new loves eyes
    And you will find true loves (not blind)
    True love you can't disguise!
    Splendid read Linda

    Ah Linda, what a wonderful truth you write here. I have always believed in closing the door on an old day, making room for the newness of the moment. Love is a bitch sometimes, but we are all seeking that perfect love and how would we recognise it, if we didn't have these painful encounters with counterfeit loves? Smiling at you, Tai (Report) Reply
