Fractured

How deep the faults lie under our feet
Across many vast expanses of time
Lost for eternity is obsolete
Never to recall lest the old bell chime

A heart beats strong and smooth to its core
Unfaltered by any unfaithful crevasse
If faith could hold us together evermore
There'd be no fear for love to perisse

Alas! Like earth love has no window
For such force we can never foresee
So precious is time that fate foreshadow
Negating science all its repartee

Wisely know in age of uncertainity
Only love can last an eternity

About this poem:
Like an earthquake, tragedy and death hit without warning,
but love too like life is precious and eternal as each day is so long
and we remember those taken away from us will live on in our hearts.

I think of the old bell chime and think how songs can bring back memories of times past. Sometimes it is a smell that can trigger a memory, but the songs do it more often.guitar violin boogie
