Only time can mend what has been broken,
And fill the hole of words unspoken.
Replace what has been fear and hate,
Stop any further destruction in the wake,
and send a warming smile to the one that all has forsaken.
show a light down a path, without wrath.
And show love in its full form,
Mending the heart that is almost beyond reform.
A heart that life has torn like a hook,
Taking what can be took.
Time does mend a soul that is far more than broken,
By words unspoken.
