“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost


Oh, my love, do not despair;
For no heart exists that can’t be repaired.
Darling, I wish that you could see
This person wasn’t meant to be.

As your tears fall,
You seem so small:
Your voice shaking, heart breaking,
Wondering if love is a chance worth taking.

Yet the day will come when you have learned,
That love is a gift that must be earned.
Until then, guard your heart,
Lest your lover depart.

Yeah, sure! My email is easy. Should I put it here or in one of the forums we usually use?

Would you by any chance want to exchange email addresses? You seem pretty good at giving advice, and I wanted to ask your opinion on something in a less public setting...

It was actually! You’re very good at analyzing poetry, I bet. They definitely should. Thank you, that means a lot.

I assume this poem is written to a friend of yours in some capacity, and if so, they should listen to your advice! You have wise writing, if that makes any sense.
