My heart yearns
As my world crumbles around me
The sadness stings like a bee
As my mind fails to keep me strong
As my life seems to be gone
The loneliness grows tall
The tears continue to fall
As my hope disappears
The joy is kept in arrears
As my heart yearns for love again
The sorrow seems to be the trend.
