A Broken Heart
There's such a thing as holding on,
You can love so dearly but find it gone.
The things you cherish are sure to soon leave,
I told you once that looks can deceive.
The memories, so bittersweet,
My thoughts of you, they aren't a treat.
You promised something but surely forgot,
The flower told me, you loved me not.
The sun it faded into the night.
The tears they fell like rain from the sky.
The sea it drained to a place unknown.
The love you promised was never shown.
I held on so tightly, never letting go.
I promised myself your love would show.
But like I said, looks do deceive.
You never meant it but I still believed.
The stars I wished on, they never fell.
The pennies I tossed got lost in the well,
The flowers I tore, so graciously apart,
So many things wasted on a broken heart.
