"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Gentle Reminder


this is no poem but a reminder
of a time when the world was kinder

of wasted care and hearts to tear
and cups full of despair

of rules to make for others to break
just for the sorrow’s sake

of broken trust and growing rust
and closed doors in the past

of flames killed fast, of curses cast.
of dead loves burried last.

this was no poem but a reminder
the time will flow and the world will be kinder
