I Haven't Given Up On Me. Have You?
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

can I have a new start?
can it be true,
that a broken heart
can be glued?
or can a heart be renewed?

if I can try again-
could a broken wing
ever fly again?

will some around me
come over to me?
be nice to me?
put an arm around me?

if I cry, will they wipe my eye
with a gentle hand?
as if they are loving
and understand?

can a life such as mine-
ever be defined?
can so many confusions
be washed away
splashing through
so many delusions?

and hopes?
that sit in my little heart
where a small child is still-
waiting and waiting to be fulfilled?

and will anyone ever come?
over to me?
I believe I can still try
I believe with just a little hope and love-
I might yet, fly-
