Can a broken heart be mended? I believe in time it can. Sometimes it takes a lifetime. And I believe once it is broken it is never exactly the same again. Even after the mending is complete. Or, is it ever completely mended or patched? I believe there are some breaks in our heart that leave a hole that never goes away. I have that forever hole. It is called Dustin. Some things never heal.
I ran across this phenomenal Japanese quote along with the attached photo.
“When the Japanese mend broken objects, the aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.” ~Billie Mobayed
Wow that is incredible. As I read the quote, not only was I reminded of all the times I have been knocked down and picked myself back up again, but also an old song that fits in with the subject. The Bee Gees were a great band. One song in particular is titled, How can you mend a broken heart.
Here are the lyrics:
And how can you mend a broken heart
How can you stop the rain from falling down
How can you stop the sun from shining
What makes the world go round
How can you mend this broken man
How can a loser ever win
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.
