A time is coming


The bruises you have gained may have caused you pain
The hurt you are feeling inside will find healing in time,
When the heart from demise climb safely to sublime aim,
Reach higher into a frame for greater purpose of mind.

A time is coming to leave the changes of things behind,
Those others may follow footprints defining success in life,
Journeying with pain to share enchantment sometime,
Unfriendly terrain helps delay the ending of bitter grief.

Good friends when free can help to mend the broken way,
Although they care; may not stay to play or share a taunt,
To the awakened mind crept back into decline each day,
And wash the stain of hope with the tears they supplant.

Time is the kindest healing merchant you will ever find
Takes the longest way to come comfort the broken heart,
Surround all the loses when cost betrayed searching mind,
Whether in pride or Art the timing can make a new start.

The best power of healing time coming takes a little while,
It stops and starts to fix the barrier rife of human feelings,
Sunk deep in disillusion state our vast seclusion's are real,
When truth stands alone quietness of sweetness it brings.

Tasting together the bitter desire in charms that merit growth,
Lasting shoots culminating in dept and inner harmony,
Healing has given a new life to the place we go upon earth,
Treasured memories saunter in the moments of victory.
