broken heart

by the poet

i felt a pain in my chest it made me break down and cry,
i made my way to a doctor and he said he could try.
He could try and do some tests to figure out whats wrong.
he gave me some black papers and on it was a heart, the picture looked so wrong.
its center was all torn and cut and bleeding from within.
he said he found a remedy, some superglue or tape,
but when it was all fixed up, the pain came back again.
he tried another cure for it, he said it would be saved,
he placed my broken heart at the end of your grave.
i saw the light shine down on it and it simply came together,
for the love you had when you were on earth glued it back together... for my cousin always and forever

IF I COULD VISIT FOR A WHILE

by Richard John Scarr
(Brighton, England.)

All my prayers lead up to Heaven.
And if I could use them like mold
I'd shape them like a spiralling staiway.
And climb to Heaven's Gates of Gold.

There I'd knock and tell the Angels
How much I miss your loving smile.
And how lonely I have been without you.
And could I visit for a while.

I'd say: "I wont outstay my welcome.
If I could spend some time with you.
Just holding hands the way we used to.
And spend a pleasant hour or two."

If I could see your face once more,
and feel the comfort of your touch.
If I could have the chance to tell you,
that I still love you very much.

If I could hold you for a moment
and look into those loving eyes.
I'd return to earth and never question
the where's and who's. Or our goodbyes.

I'd just wait until I too could leave
and cross the great divide.
And the time I visit there with you,
would keep me till I'm by your side.

SARAH

by Richard John Scarr
(Brighton, England)

Sarah! Oh my Sarah!
I don't know what to do.
I promised you I wouldn't cry.
But oh-I'm missing you!

I struggled through your funeral.
Now I'm sitting here alone.
Amidst the empty silence
that used to be our home.

I feel so lost, my darling.
I can't except that you are gone.
I still hear your gentle laughter,
and your perfume lingers on.

You have left me such a heartache.
The pain wont go away.
How can I face tomorrow,
when I can't get through today?

Of all the things you taught me.
How to smile and shed a tear.
You forgot one vital lesson.
How to live now you're not here!

I feel so strange, my darling.
I must close my eyes and sleep.
The room is filled with a silvery light,
and I no longer want to weep.

Someone else is drawing near.
Their hand is in my hand.
Darling, darling Sarah!
I know that wedding band!

Sarah, is that really you
standing by my side?
You look as young and beautiful
as the day you were my bride!

Yes, it's me, my darling!
I could not leave you here alone.
You are just too lost without me.
So I've come to take you home.
