The Healer

The Healer

A Poem by vspjaguar
"

A self healing poem for broken hearts.

"
This is a story of a lonesome bird
living secluded, away from his herd.
He was considered to be unworthy.
He fled away as they lacked empathy.

On one fine day while he was scouting
for his food, he found another bird shouting
for help as she couldn't move her broken wing.
Each time she tried to move it, she felt the sting.

He carefully carried her under a wing
and flapped the other hard in full swing.
He darted towards home,gave her his nest.
asked not to worry and take good rest.

He'd somehow bring ample food someday
or sacrifice his own food on a bad day,
He has never seen anything like her before.
She was a beautiful sight for eyes very sore.

Her words were poems he has never heard.
She was different from the others in his herd.
Just talking with her made his pains to fade
away.He wished,with him forever she stayed.

Her wings seemed to have healed so quickly.
His world is now suddenly lost in a mist darkly.
Time has come for her to depart.She is ready
now, her wings are mended and made sturdy.

Time has come for him to say that he fell in love
with her and wanted to be with her for the rest of
his life.He took courage,went near her to propose
and gave her the most romantic gift,a red rose.

Suddenly it felt as if the world stood still;
silence engulfed the whole place till
she spoke.She looked at him with her teary
eyes and said ,to her he is someone deary.

She went on by saying that she has a broken
heart.She loved a man but she was forsaken
and he fled away from her life.Her heart never
healed unlike her wing,It might take her forever.

He then said I know how difficult it would be
to  forget someone.I can't even imagine me
forgetting you; but if you let the best healer,
the time to heal you,it might not take forever.

She came towards him,gave him a gentle kiss
on his cheek and said I'm surely going to miss
 you.As you said if my heart heals I will come
back one day hoping that you would welcome.

He saw her fly away from him but he wouldn't cry.
As a voice inside him kept telling him she would come by
one day.For that day he waits hearing the voice of
hope;hoping that he would see her again,his only love.

Well loving someone without expectation is the true love. You do not chose love, love chooses, all you need to do is keep your heart open irrespective of past experiences. I enjoyed reading this one. Hope she comes back, even if she doesn't someone truly deserving will come as mentioned in the poem time is the healer and we should give it time.

Thanks Kshitij :)
A amazing story told in the poem.
"He saw her fly away from him but he wouldn't cry.
As a voice inside him kept telling him she would come by
one day.For that day he waits hearing the voice of
hope;hoping that he would see her again,his only love."
Love cannot fly away for too long if true and kind. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
