Shuttered Heart

Doom not the heart to tears of mourning,

Withdrawal of love may oft engender.

For lack of words, the voice goes still,

            Sting of loss entwines as spirit doth meander.

Once strength of love betrayed the past,

            Overcoming pain and sorrow.

Injured hearts reaching out, love to mend their wounds,

            Each seeking a new tomorrow.

But one yet stands, lost midst emotions,

            Fears of spirit bind to wasteland of confusion.

Yet wanders young soul, searching for a reason

Thoughts a sea, mind deep in illusion.

Does love know the way, a light within the darkness,

            Can any truly say, in life is no conflict?

For what be the battle, if not for a heart’s desire,        

            To free one’s spirit, tragic memories to evict.

Let hearts not be sealed, with shutters of despair,

            Throw open the gates of regret, unbind chains of woe,

Prepare the heart for renewal,

            That love you may ever know.
