They Say

They say
"Rules are meant to be broken."
But hearts aren't;
A broken heart is like shattered glass
That you can't find all the pieces of
When you go to mend it.

They say
"Smile because it happened."
But the only smiles to be found
Are through the tears
Of a never quite healed wound.

They say
"Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
And they are right.

*I think this is the first and only time I've ever been able to write a poem that does not reflect my personal thoughts and feelings at present...

I was just beginning to think "I hope Kristin is doing alright". Then I read the close. You are a very happy person inside and it rubs off on me. Thanks.

I appreciate your concern; It's nice to have a brother like you :)
