Love’s Irony of Time

How does one learn to forgive?
How does the heart forget?
Prayers, hopes, expectations—
Now powerless and dead.

Once I thought it’d be easy;
Once I hoped you’ll return.
But after years of damned silence,
I found my heart scarred, torn.

Just as the mind thinks it’s over,
The heart becomes perplexed.
Just as fall leaves my doorsteps,
Winter comes knocking next.
