#16. After the HeartBreak

Oh welcome home, Love!

How wondrous to behold thee again

What grace and purity you have, so like a dove

I’d forgotten how beautiful thou art

when seen without a cloud of pain.

How suddenly thou left, oh how for thee I feared

Or did he force thee along, out in the cold?

My heart bursts with secrets longing to be shared

Do you see the sad stories in my eyes waiting to be told?

Oh love, will thou stay forever this time?

Please do, for that’s how long before my heart will heal.

You see, he committed a grave crime

He branded my heart forever with his seal.

Oh welcome home, love!

Come in, come in, I chatter so

Hold me, embrace me, and never let go

My dear, dear friend, I have missed you so.
