Broken Heart

Written by: Elizabeth Schlicht

Broken heart
Cracked and bleeding
That is how I feel today

Leaving now is
hard to handle
After seeing
your sweet face

Trying not to 
feel the gnawing
Buried deep inside
my chest

Can't forget the
two sweet kisses
As you touched
your lips to mine

When you wrapped
your arms around me
Time stood still
and hearts entwined

Amazing eyes 
so warm and gentle
Soft and filled
with love were they

Lost and Lonely
draw me closer
Two old friends
that time forgot

Broken heart
cracked and bleeding
Time will but a bandage be

Round the bandage seeps
my life’s blood
Draining as I onward go

Broken heart
cracked and bleeding
Guard it with my life and soul
