I wrote this for a dear friend of mine who is going through a very difficult divorce.
Sweet, Sweet Pretty Lies
Tell me sweet, sweet, pretty lies
That we will always sing our song
Tell me our love will never die
Before you leave and move along
Just for today let us pretend
That our lives do still entwine
That e’er our hearts will beat as one
Making ours, of yours and mine
Let us pretend there will be no pain
That each day the sun will shine
Tell me once more, that you love me still
And that you always will be mine
And I will tell you that my heart
Beats strong with love so true
And that our lives were meant to be
As one, just me and you
Let us pretend that roses bloom
Through winter’s freezing snow
That summer’s promise will never fade
And that our love will always grow
Just for today let us be joined
And pretend it’s our first time
Sweet, with honest love and hope
And tenderness sublime
Then when the dawn of ‘morrow comes
And the sunrise seals our fate
We’ll find that though we once knew love
For broken hearts, it’s far too late

|Sweet, sweet poetic truth.|
|Reviewed by J'nia Fowler
|It seems that truth hurts. It is too painful to face but lies, they lay so easily on our hearts as first offering and we want to hang on to them to the bitter end. We are strange creatures aren't we?
|Reviewed by Poetess of The Soul Sheila G

|Reviewed by Regis Auffray
|Your verses are very compelling in expressing the theme that you put forward, Sherry. This reminds me of Fleetwood Mac's "Tell Me Lies." Thank you for sharing these moving sentiments. Love and best wishes to you,

|Let's hear it for sweet and tender lies! Well-said!! Cynicism is its own reward!! So much that passes for "honesty" is simply self-fulfilling pessimism, don't you think? Sometimes we can make ourselves more loving -- and our lovers -- by playing like we are. Well-meant compliments may not literally be true, but if they come from the right place, they not only make us feel better, they help spread the feeling around. Romance is not about bluntness!! It is about wearing matching rose-colored glasses. It really IS better
to have loved and lost than not to have loved. Thank you for dreating this. . .from the heart, it is clear! xOx Phyllis xOx

|This is very powerful, Sherry, and a very sad message of pretending the love is still fresh in their hearts. I am wishing your friend well Sherry, and I hope that maybe someday she will find peace and happiness.
May The Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Long time no see! You nor I have been posting and when I saw your name on the poetry board I rushed in to read and say Hello! So much has happened in the last year that it's just impossible for me to find time to write, or comment as far as that goes, but while I'm sure I'm forgetting to do something important this morning, I just couldn't help but visit your page. I went back to work, (in retail ofcourse) I just couldn't resist, especially when it's less than a mile from my front door. They were willing to work around my health issues and I am so grateful. I fill alive again. But then in May, I lost all of my hearing. It was a tragic and scary feeling, to be cast into this silent world. But now I have found a Dr that tells me he can fix this dilemma. He is going to install a BAHA implant. (BAHA) stands for (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) Although it takes several months to complete the installment, I am looking so forward to being able to hear again. The neat part is that I will be blue-tooth capable. Isn't that funny? It's odd how they can invent so many things to help those most unfortunate to get over the hurdles life throws at them.
I've so often thought of how you and your new house was getting along? I believe that was the last time we actually communicated was when you finalized the sale and was moving in. You were so thrilled that you have finally made that big step into buying a house of your own, and I was just as thrilled for you. Still am! Well I guess I best tell you how much I enjoyed your poem and how much I miss reading you. Thanks Sherry for posting! Take care now and let me hear from you.

|Great sweet and sour Sherry, most lovers don't know, even before they get together, it's too late. Love is a sweet and sour game, 50 percent of marriages end in divorce and shame. Even though it's always too late, us humans still try to mate. I've been with my wife 24 years, it was too late for us when we first got together, how did we make it this long, I realized that we were doomed to fail and faced it, I changed my negative ways to offset the negative balance, it worked so we're still married, this sounds about as crazy as being doomed from the start doesn't it, but the way I figure, I faced failure and refused to let it happen. Hope your friend find light. Hugs|

|At first I read, [FARTS] only to discover it was an E. Why is that lies always seem better than the truth when it comes to relationships?

|"For broken hearts, it's far too late"-- And yet every syllable of this lyrical write honors love with such beauty and truth that hope remains a powerful force with which to contend. The "pretty lie" itself might be worthless as all get out, but the poet Sherry Heim's pen makes belief and love possible again. Much gratitude for the sharing,
