a lonely hearts ballad

i read your words and know your pain
i feel your heart and wish in vain
no one should feel as lonely as you 
every soul deserves to be happy and true

smile now, just for smile's sake 
warm your mind and erase the hate
keep your heartbeat strong and rejoice
love and joy is your best choice

don't feel the hurt or regret the life
even though you may be filled with strife
remember the good times that was had
look toward the better ones to outshine the bad

it may seem like the world will surely end
that a heart ripped in two can never mend
if you should know nothing else than this
know that you are loved and truly missed
