Broken Heart's Wish

May you live as long as you want,
never want as long as you live.
 
May your days have no numbers
just multiply as so many zephyrs
Eyes deadened at callous receding back
Tongue knotted, courage did not lack

Done- tears dried, depleted sighs, muted cries
heart says may your joys glow like many fireflies

Dry well of broken heart, refilled magically
Belting litanies for its heartbreaker soulfully

Love is releasing not letting it accrue
True love frees chancing its return, willfully

You hold my heart in your palm eternally
whosoever you woo now, be happy

May you live as long as you want,
never want as long as you live.

  

Had we never lov’d sae kindly, Had we never
lov’d sae blindly, Never met – or never parted
we had never been broken-hearted.
Robert Burns


The last time I saw him he was walking
down lover’s lane holding his own hand

Broken Heart’s Wish

May you live as long as you want,
always want as long as you live

May your days have no numbers
simply a blur filled with murkiness

Eyes deadened at callous receding back
Tongue knotted, courage did not lack

Done- tears dried, depleted sighs, muted cries
heart says may your joys burn like many fries

Dry well of broken heart, refilled magically
Belting litanies for its heartbreaker soulfully

Love is releasing not letting it accrue
True love spurned spills venom wholeheartedly

You hold my heart in your palm eternally
whosoever you woo now, never be happy

May you live as long as you want,
always want as long as you live.
