Life happens

Time passes

Emotions remain in our hearts

Thoughts remain in our heads

A heart may split

But remain whole

Tears may fall

For joy

For sorrow

For love

For want

A heart may be surrendered

Either up

Or back

Joy released

Sorrow swallowed

A heart moves forward

Another stays behind

One to freedom

The other steadfast

One to write happily ever after

The other to close the book

One to reach the stars

The other to be a rock

Lips will smile encouragement

Teeth will still the trembling

Words will push

Thoughts will condemn

Eyes will yearn to see happiness

Lashes will hold back salty sadness

Arms will embrace and cushion

And ache from eviction

Emotions remaining in heart

Thoughts remaining in head

A heart may split

But remain whole
