Poetry Friday: A Valentine by Jeannette Bliss Gillespy

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Katy on a Mission by Katy B

The wise forget, dear heart;
They leave the past
And play the hero’s part,
Brave to the last.

They weep not nor regret,
Calm are their eyes.
Dear heart, the wise forget.-
I am not wise!

Such a quiet thought, and surprise at the end. Is it wise to tell? Thanks, and Happy Valentine's Day!
