Heartaches Will Never Last

Heartaches will never last,
Nor will they forever stay;
Sorrow shall be replaced
By delight each passing day.

Once in a little while,
Human hearts may break and bleed;
It happens to anyone,
To call on the Lord and plead.

The colors of life
Are not just lucid and bright;
But also dark, blue and gray,
To even the day and night.

Pain and hopelessness
Are only in someone's mind;
They may be wiped out,
Better leave them both behind.

No one else can cure
But you and yourself alone;
Fervent devotional prayers
Take you away from cry zone.

Smile the sweetest smile
And the whole wide world smiles too;
Cry the saddest moan,
You shall find it's only you.

Getting out of the blue
Is easier said than done;
But with God on your side
Impossible thing is none.

Forgiveness from the heart,
Forgetting things of the past;
You shall now realize,
That heartaches will never last.

'Getting out of the blue Is easier said than done; But with God on your side Impossible thing is none' Great lines. The essence of the poem there. Accept good and bad with equanimity. Beautiful rhyming scheme 10/10
