AS SONGS ONCE SUNG

As songs once sung cannot be unsung
A bell rung cannot be unrung
But love expressed becomes a balm
And prayerful thoughts produce a calm.

A word once spoken leaves the tongue
With no recall, and tears might be rung
But healing hands touch, palm to palm
As songs once sung.

A faith held fast allays the qualm
Compassion can become our psalm
As stars across the heavens strung
As songs once sung!

    The poem I wrote for a friend I
    used to have....
    We are not friends any more...
    sadly!
    I think of her....and miss her!
    But, unfortunately,she destroyed
    our friendship.

  20. I am sorry about your friendship which was broken....
    I too had a very close friend with whom I never had a fight..but she suddenly got into bad company...her life took a strange turn and we separated..but I missed her a lot...few weeks ago she called me to tell me her life is back on track..that she was well and was getting married...jst her call was like a 'balm' to my sores...
    Thank you for the poem
