Broken Hearts Are

Slow To Mend

If you love someone it's difficult to let go

Broken hearts are slow to mend

Even if you try the pain won't go away

Sometimes it remains until the end.

Life can be sad and terribly cruel

Sorrow comes to both bad and good

Perhaps it's a test to see what you'll do

Maybe it's not meant to be understood.

Life is like riding a seesaw up and down

You laugh and sometimes you cry

You have to face things as they come

It's a struggle but you still have to try.

I know it's true and terribly sad, because:

If you love someone it's difficult to let go

Broken hearts are slow to mend

Even if you try the pain won't go away

Sometime it remains until the end.

Broken hearts are slow to mend.
