An Aching Heart
Author: Del


What can you do for an aching heart?
I really wish I knew.
Neither a doctor or a dentist
Can offer comfort for you.

The pain it inflicts is a steady pain,
It just doesn't go away,
You feel it in the morning when you awake
And it stays with you all day.

You talk to your heart and tell it,
Stop! this is no good at all,
But it's like a turbulent river
Going over a water fall.

There is no way to stop the hurting,
Except maybe, with a prayer or two.
God may be able to stop the pain,
And help you see this thru.

I think its so weird that you can literally have a hurting heart! When ppl say oh you hurt my feelings well one day I found out it was true my mom said something really horrible to me and I felt a little pain pierce my heart and from that day on I knew to be careful with ppl's hearts cuz you'll never know whos your gonna break!

Its true no matter how much you want it to go away it won't. The only thing you can do is pray. Very nice.
