Missing You!

Life Is Like A River

Without You

Broken Pieces

Broken Heart 2 Pictures, Images and Photos

Like a broken down fence
Years wasted, too much nonsense
Sad thoughts seem to stay
Like hardened molded clay
Cannot be twisted nor bent
Like a sudden cold breeze her life went
Struggled to get to the end of road
Pulled an extra heavy load
Mourning like someone just died
Round and round on a merry-go-ride
Like a wounded bird trying to take flight
She wanted to fly away many a stormy night
Carried baggage she borrowed
Stayed there afraid in sorrow
Emptiness and shame inside
His life, a slow suicide
Often times she was hit
She tried to fix it
Promises of better days ahead
No chance to rehearse
Problems grew worse
Packed and unpacked bags
Wrapped in a patchwork of rags
Stitches ripped apart at seams
Worn threads, broken pieces nothing left to redeem

March 21, 2009 Janet Irene Griffin
