Heart broken again

by Keith D Allison

In the valley of pain
The trees are all scarred
From yesterday fires

In the canyon
Where the granite heart’s
Remember the trees

For in the day
You cannot see
you will touch the stream
Recovering the dream

Brokenhearted again
So today
Just remember
To breathe

For life
That sacred

This is a very natural poem that lends itself to a certain sadness. However, the verse also holds the key. Remember to breathe. This is the first thing we learn and it is often what we need to return to when things get too confusing for us. Excellent words!
