Don't Cry

by Sylvia   Jan 26, 2013


No more tears,
only smiles shall grace
this face.

Memories linger of a love
greater than
years can span.

Hopes dashed by simple words, it's over.
Love ended,
time suspended.

A broken heart will mend,
and no more will it cry.
Simply said, goodbye.

Written for Club Contest In 2010
Based on Quote By Theodore Geisel: Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

    Okay Sylvia this is one of my favorite quotes so that warmed my heart to see you write about it. I loved the interpretation you used in the poem. You did a great job with it. I love how you consistantly made the lines short and I believe each one tells a sad story all their own. You started out great with the first stanza and brought so much hope to a sad situation. Goodbye is never easy but through the tears you can see a smile thats bright. I like the connection between goodbye and memorirs.

    We can always remember the good times even if we say goodbye so I believe the tears can can be happy orsad. You miss the pperson so much that you cry but do you cry because you are sad or happy for the memorirs your heart holds? The third stanza is good too because it keeps with the rest of the "tone " of the poem. Love can hurt so much but it's better to feel loved and than lose it than never feel it at all.

    I loved how each line/stanza you seem to paint a different emotion. I thought that was very clever. Hearts do mend I agree. Sometimes it is better to say goodbye and just move on. Overall you did the quote proud I feel. It is perfect and lovely. Well done!!

    This is a powerful poem. It holds a lot of conviction.

    No more tears,
    only smiles shall grace
    this face.

    --- A very powerful statement to start a poem. It tells the reader that this poem will hold strength and optimism.

    Memories linger of a love
    greater than
    years can span.

    --- Memories can sometimes be bittersweet yet we still cling to them so much for they give us reasons to change and start over again.

    Hopes dashed by simple words, it's over.
    Love ended,
    time suspended.

    --- "It's over" can really destroy your whole world. It makes time stop as if there's no more reason to keep moving on.

    A broken heart will mend,
    and no more will it cry.
    Simply said, goodbye.

    --- Everything will be okay in the end. Everything happens to make us stronger. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

    I hope you write more poems... For this poem really brings inspiration. I hope to see you write again. 5/5

    It takes the inner strenth to put a past behind. Moving forward sometimes is the hardest thing to do, but i've learnt with time that people will always be who they are and lovers are no exception. I always enjoyed your poems.
