Poem #25 by Bridget B

She was wearing a black dress.

He was crying in distress.

All they wanted was someone to caress.

 

Depression and pain had taken him away while she was mourning the world’s dismay.

Fate decided the puzzle pieces fit together and she introduced herself as Heather.

He looked into her eyes and saw himselfi

Wishing he could put his life on a shelf.

But instead everything was new

And his love would beย  a breakthrough.

 

Her heart was broken by exterior words.

Misunderstood, she lost bird singing a broken song to a broken mirror pleading “Please let my emotions be clearer.”

He was told at a young age you’ll never be normal, instead he kept to his morals.

He lived his life in sadness; there was nothing he could do, but then God said “let her see you.”

Depression ruled them but the reign is over.

They worshipped the king and gave them a life luckier than a four leaf clover.
