Heart Break

When tears rain
Down my heart
As they so often have -
I feel so alone.

When my arms ache
From emptiness -
When my heart
Has more love to give,
And the ones
I give my love to
Are gone.

When I come home
After a long day of work
To a quiet house -
So quiet.

God, are You here?

I try to remind myself that You are.

I long to be
The innocent one again.
Who never knew of death
In my womb.

Who never knew the death of dreams -
So many dreams.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick.
Ah, yes - sadly so.
