How do you heal a broken heart? How do you mend a shattered dream or restore a fractured soul?

REMNANTS OF A BROKEN HEART

By Al Garcia

How do you heal a broken heart?  How do you mend a shattered dream or restore a fractured soul? 

There are no words or prayers, no promises or actions that can erase the emptiness left behind by loss of any kind.  Nor is there time long enough to obliterate the abyss of the infinity or immensity of forever.  You simply live with the memories and with the resonance of the voice, the touch, the tenderness and the gentleness that used to be.

The hurt never leaves and the scar never heals.  And your heart weakens as the days grow long, and your soul begins to wither with each passing season.  It is the irony of love – the ache, the pain and the sadness that is left behind.

And yet, it is the remnants of a broken heart that keeps alive the love, the joy, the passion that enflamed the bond that never breaks. 

And then you wait – for the day your heart is whole again.  But then, it is you who will break a heart, shatter a dream and fracture a soul.  And once again, the ache, the pain and the sadness of love will touch the remnants of a broken heart that you have left behind.
