Advice for the Broken-Hearted

by Pamela Newham

She brings me her broken heart
but it is not for me to mend.

I could say you will get over it.
I could say he is not worth your tears.
I could say you will find someone new.
I could say the world is fickle.
I could say your heart may break again.

But a poem, ah, a poem will reach
for your hand
a poem
will whisper
you are not alone.
