Where Has All Our Love Gone

Where Has All Our Love GoneWhere has all our love gone
Have these years meant nought to you
Somehow, somewhere, sometime, somehow
One love’s gone amissing from the love of two

One day a new dawn, it shone change
Upon our captured hearts once true
We didn’t see it coming
Oh! dear Lord, our hearts renew

Silence now shows its brokenness
As days turn into weeks
Little things now sting and are noticeable
Oh! dear Lord, awake these hearts that sleep

Where once there were often flowers
Now thorny weeds are spoken and devoid of smile
Hands that once loved to be held
Are distant and togetherness grows apart by the mile

Lord, please heal and seal past whispers
Of faithfulness, compassion and need
Please don’t give up on this faltering, sad, sad bond
Heal, release and may our hearts on Your love feed

  1. Hi Dear Liana, So sorry I haven’t been around for a while. It’s an extremely busy time of the year for me creating holiday graphics, that my blog has been basically neglected. I finally managed a new post today. I’ve also had company, with more on the way, so a busy time of the year. This is beautiful, although sad. My husband and I had a wonderful relationship right to the end, almost forty years. But, unfortunately others aren’t so blessed, and I’m sure your poem will find it’s way to someone’s heart that needs it now, and will bring a measure of healing. How wonderful you added your photo to your blog. You are as lovely as your poems!


    1. So lovely to hear from you again Betty Jo … it’s amazing the impact that the close ‘blogging’ relationship can have on us … how we miss those who have become ‘close’ friends over the net; but most are beautiful brothers and sisters in Christ – when posts dwindle or communication stalls … I’m so happy that your marriage was blessed and thank you so very much for your encouragement. Love, hugs and prayers xxx
