BROKEN HEARTS AND LOST SOULS

There is no bitterness too great to heal,
What one word of kindness often consoles.
Still, I know the bitterness that you feel,
In this world of broken hearts and lost souls.

Oh, I am one of them as much as you,
Whose life seems cast from a dark-clouded birth.
For we cannot prove what we know is true,
That we were born to walk this pain-filled earth!

I only see what I have always seen,
And only know what I have always known:
There must be something more our lives to mean
Than to wander it…forever alone.

I look upon your face and see a smile,
And know that not all is lost entirely.
For have we not been waiting here a while,
As the broken shore awaits the slow sea?

Yet even the sea throws its driftwood back,
Like desolate skies do a falling star.
So perhaps no life is so bleak and black
That hope cannot save us from what we are!

Might it be better if we joined forces?
I hear hope is good–and love is great, too!
Perhaps if we combined our resources,
Happiness might be something we can do.

So…even if we can’t have forever,
And hope is the only word that consoles,
Aren’t two broken hearts better together
Than wandering through life as two lost souls?
