Hope

Hope came to me again
on Monday night

On Tuesday text messages
reached out, touched my heart

Wednesday it quietly built momentum, the beat of my heart
to be dashed on Thursday, though only a feeling, nothing concrete to start
a text message that night
left me in doubt
so no sleep that night
trying to direct anger
at something else didn’t seem right

Confirmed all through Friday, no messages, no texts
but in person that night
it is over

Though our love burns bright
we cannot get past
what has caused us such pain
so apart we remain
though with kindness and care
and a love that left us breathless and gasping
for air

The weekend went by in a blur
perhaps our last time together
how will it turn out
broken hearts, minds and souls
forever we will remain
love found
then lost again

They say time heals all
but what say they of hope lost
so many alone
hearts ache
bodies cry out
in pain

Never together
forever alone

Hope will come again
when you least expect it
perhaps
but forever you will know
what it was to love
and then to lose it again
