My Poems  

Broken Heart

A poem by Beverly Stock.

A broken heart led me straight to him.

Mis-placed love he locked within.

If he loved me, was just a guess,

Never spoken at my request.

Not all the hope I dreamt and saved,

Not all the prayers I planned and prayed,

Not anything that I could do or say,

Could make him feel my love that way.

I lasted longer than I thought I could,

Probably longer that I should,

It sounds improbable to say,

My broken heart showed me the way.
