Time to Love Again

01 Oct

The nights we wake
With thoughts of pain
That never seems to abate
With our flowing tears

Wondering if rended hearts
Could be mended on earth.
A whisper of wind by the windowsill
A tink-a-tonk on the door’s keeol.

It’s love again, you know it
Should you let him in
It’s him that let your demons out
Should your heart warm him in.

His voice is softer; the knock, subtler
The time is not right.
It’s dark and you still cry;
And your thoughts are farther
The times are just not right

The knock thins, your heart skips
The whisper’s still, your heart skips
He knows the feel, he feels it too
But he knows the time’s not right too

Will the time ever get right
To love another again
Will you ever get the strength
That comes from being loved again

You’ll know
When the time’s right
You’ll know
That love isn’t time-bound.

    Will the time ever get right
    To love another again . . .

    You’ll know
    When the time’s right
    You’ll know
    That love isn’t time-bound.

    Okay, if you say so 😀
    I feel as though many people can relate to this. The anguish of past heartbreak and the real fear of loving again.

      LoL, I’d say heartbreak has become a RELEVANT part of being human. In the words of Elizabeth Gilbert, it’s pain but it’s a time you’ll always look back to and agree that you were being built up.
