while my heart is breaking

Posted to Action Poetry




while my heart is breaking
no violins start to play
no shining knight comes running
to make it all go away

while my heart is breaking
I hear the battle cries
and wonder, what would I do
if I had to do or die.

while my heart is breaking
I watch my daughter grow
I worry how she'll take it
when she learns what we all know

while my heart is breaking
the days just drift on by
rivers keep on flowing
but my tears have run dry

while my heart is breaking
I keep the usual pace
trying to keep my footing
in the nothingness of faith
