in Hope Poems
Life can seem an endless maze,
The twists and turns, lulls and delays,
But things always fall into place...
In good time.
One famous historical book says, "expectation postponed is making the heart sick". Those wise words have proven true time and again for many. Many people wait their whole lives for things that are difficult to come across, like true love or exceptional secular opportunities. Unfortunately, some things, like finding a soulmate, do not necessarily happen when one would like. Often, the wait can become frustrating, causing sadness, anger and other negative feelings. One way to combat such feelings is to read the poetry of others who have experienced similar emotions.
I sat there and waited
Never left the porch
But you never showed
It's like you burned my heart with a torch...
I was 3 or 4 when my daddy left me. Just my mommy by my side. I wondered why he left me. My mommy said I may never know. As I got older I found out more things. I still ask myself why he left...
I never knew a broken heart could keep on breaking.
You keep on sending your love, but no one's there to take it.
Rivers of tears keep a steady flow...
But no one's there to know.
This really brought tears to my eyes as I have been dealing with CPS and fighting for my babies for a year and a half. I miss them so much and just wish and pray they would soon be returned...
I sit alone in the darkness
Waiting for him to come back to me.
Can he hear my cries?
I haven't lost my dad, but I did lose one of my closest friends who sent me a scary letter then never talked to me again. A year later, and I'm still waiting for him. This poem explains just...
My heart is set, on that glorious day.
When your work is done, and you're home to stay.
I'll be waiting right here, with open arms.
To hold you close, and keep you warm.
I am in a long distance relationship and these words were soothing. I knew I wasn't alone and my boo is soon visiting sooo..they were timely. I can't wait to hug him tight.
Can he see me?
Can he hear me?
Does he know I'm there?
When I am standing at his bedside or sitting in a chair.
I have a friend that's keeping their illness/sickness a secret. Not telling family or friends. Just struggling to deal with it alone. So I'm trying to encourage her and help in any way I can.
