Richard Devereux

time heals

 

two words

the rub of balm

 

have faith

time heals

 

no need

to do a thing

 

just wait

for time to heal

 

don’t let

doubts creep in

 

just wait

time heals

 

broken leg

or broken heart

 

the same

to time that heals

 

every time

it may not

 

but when it can

time will heal

Commentary

We decided we might write to an optional prompt in November of 'healing'. Some of us did, some didn't. The phrase 'time heals' went around in my head for a couple of weeks and eventually presented itself as this poem.
