My Life

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

My very first poem Written at the age of 47

"







On mornings hence I'll forget

to forgive this callous blow

That left me broken on the field

where angels hearts don't go

____________________________


As to the scar left there upon

I'll hide it best I can

For fear they might see my pain

and think me not a man

___________________________


When in future I'll be asked

to say this was my fault

Why open this tender heart within

to the unending pain of assault

____________________________


As future bears witness of

my life and deeds inscribe

Descendants will think me as kind

for the life I try to describe

___________________________


In life I took much less than gave

I walked the good heart line

Carried the hopes of the small

held theirs as they held mine

___________________________


But to God, I say through it all

I was true to his design

Gave my heart in earnest love

for a life, sweet, gentle and divine

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
What can be said of the broken heart that hasn't touched most? I was much too old to be having my first and only heart break. It struck me like a thunderclap . Knocked the wind from me and set me off my heels. I was a long time injured. And to a depth yet unknown to me. This is the first poem I ever wrote! Written at the age of 47, 2008. Luckily I went on survived to love and marry again!

Tate....so moving, so sweet to listen to the heart of a real man. Sorry about the broken heart, there is but nothing more painful. Even although we know they mend, it's the damage in between the healing process.
You tell us of your excruciating experience, a place where no man wants to ever visit with his heart, yet you are able to complete such a magnificent poem in doing so.
Thanks for share

Heartbreak can be very crushing, and there are so many reasons for us to take many paths, some of which are destroying. I think that in this journey we call life, you have been fortunate, not only to find your calling, but you are enjoying the ultimate Love experience....I wish you a lifetime of same...Barbz
