A Broken Heart


A broken heart is something
We have all known
Many times we hide it
So our sorrow isn't shown

Our hearts break when a friends dies
One you've known for many years
The pain we feel we cannot hide
As we painfully shed our tears

How about a pet we've had for years
Suddenly one day they are gone
That loss had it's own kind of pain
But we still find a way to go on

I know that most people
Associate a broken heart
With a broken love
That's usually how it starts

But your child can break your heart
As you watch them struggle in school
You so much want for them to succeed
So as they go through life they won't be fooled

So you see, a heart breaks comes in many ways
There are many causes and reasons for our pain
Just one broken heart regardless of the reason
From that point on, we never seem to be the same

    Whatever the reason, a broken heart is a broken heart. They all break the same. Strange how so many different matters of life can cause such immense pain, but somehow, we find a way to keep going. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
