Borrowed Heart


I borrowed your heart for a day

I desperately needed the time away

And although there wasn’t much to say

You listened and cried with me anyway

Now I can only hope and pray

That eventually I will find my way

Thanks for lending your heart for a day

  6. only person who has gone through this bleeding understand it : I do, in fact broken heart never mends, yes it can be put together but cracks remain for ever, (my view)
    Cracks are permanent,
