About the Poem
I wrote this poem shortly after I lost someone.
Pains Of The Heart
|by Katey Shines|
|Pains of the heart
Burn like a knife,
Slice you down to size,
Take away your pride.
You’ve lost your money, you can cry,
But lost your friends, say good bye.
A lost love, of so long ago,
Pain so deep you can’t know.
That tender face so far away.
That dream of it, you dream all day.
A cut so deep it never heals,
Can’t compare to how you feel.
You hold your heart in your hands,
But alone is where I must stand.
To walk, to talk,
To laugh and cry,
But my friend, this is good bye.
Deep in my heart you will always stay.
I will never be far away.
Yet in the stars, we will meet,
Then my life will be complete.
As days fly by in time and space, you must leave,
But not I, for this is my place.
In your heart will I stay? Only God can say.
But in my heart will you stay?
I’ll think about you every day.
