Mending Hearts*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



[ DXXVIII ~> Mending Hearts* ]

DXXVIII ~> Mending Hearts*
(Opus528 ~> Mending Hearts)
Getting a broken heart before knowing
Your heart was breaking, proves how much off-guard
You can ever get; nursing its growing
Back to prime shape, sans promise of reward;
Slings and arrows hurled at you, disregard:
The perfect time to mend an aching heart
Comes when you learn that mending is an art!
Your heart gets broken before you know how;
You begin to learn when it gets too late.
The urgency of events here and now
In your to-do-next file you relegate;
The aching heart regrets not to forget:
Making light comedy of tragedy,
Makes a mockery of your malady!
Inoculate the heart from future pain
With classic rampart dreams of make-believe;
Tradition counts your lose as its own gain;
Best be cognizant of who you deceive
Suicidal inklings got none good to give:
Mending the broken heart needs diligence
Consistent with the thirst for excellence!
