    My heart has been broken
    Many a time
    By many a man
    Yet and still I Love
    My soul has wept
    From loss
    From crushed dreams
    And murdered hopes
    Yet and Still I Love
    Sometimes it seems my prince will never come
    He died from a fatal disease caught by his doggish ways
    Devastated hearts lay
    Strewn all around me
    Further evidence that eternal Love
    Is a myth fabricated by
    Little old spinsters still clinging to dreams
    Yet and Still I Love
    Forever seems so far away
    Yet every year I am closer to the end
    Of life
    And no relief in sight for my heart
    My desires
    My passions
    Yet and Still I Love
    Sometimes it seems
    That destiny has forgotten me
    Love don’t love me no more
    And I am left with my childish fantasies
    Yet and Still I Love
    Contemplating my single state
    I am amazed at how strong love is
    How tenacious it can be
    How persistent the lure
    Because
    My heart has been broken
    Many a time
    By many a man
    Yet and Still I Love……..

    God created us with His mighty hands, and the beautiful

    mystery of the heart is its incredible durability.... we were made to love, and I believe the tears we shed over every lost love, does this miraculous thing, it waters our souls during the drought seasons....& wipes the slate clean.... our hearts absorb and barely remembers the former pain as we emerge fresh and new after rain... to trust, and hope, & love again.

    I feel you so deeply my sista! Beautiful peace :heart:

    thank you
