The Graveyard Of Your Heart

I looked into your heart today
To try and find me there
But saw the place where once we danced
Was now all clear and bare.
The grass was cut, the soil was tilled
But nothing growing there.

I further looked with saddened eyes
And spied a lonely mound,
And in a hole within the earth
A box was all I found.
Upon a plaque my name was scrawled
In the graveyard of your heart.

      Well written and expressed, Losing a friend rather by death or just a break up in friendship is always a hard thing to handle

          Beautifully written poem. I like how you treat the subject matter by looking into the other person's heart rather than yours.

            Thank you again Fred.

            Beautiful. When friends die a part of us dies as well.
