A Heart No Longer


The place where I once had a heart, a slow smoldering rage burns
You once made me your woman, the empty place where my heart was still yearns
You took something that once was so beautiful and trampled on it
Now my heart, totally destroyed sits in a bottomless pit

I will carry on with my dignity, not letting others know our love has died
I will hold my head high, suffer silently that when you said you loved me you lied
So here stands a woman so broken by your love too
I'll never leave you, I'll never let others know we are through

Your once warm arms are not there to embrace me with love
We once fit so well like hand and glove
We could hardly wait to be in each other arms
Have you darling fell under another's charms

Well good nighty dear, another day has passed
Maybe tomorrow a shimmer of hope shall last!

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
