Her heart is gentle,
Gentle like rain
But it's been hurt before
      so many times
She doesn't want to be hurt again.

Her heart is tender
Tender like a song
But it's been so long since
     that song was sung
She sings not before the throng.

Her heart has been shattered
Shattered like glass
Picking up the pieces
     hasn't been easy
The shards cut deep, wounds from the past.

But, there is one, an angel
Who can make her heart whole
An angel of love
     and angel of light
One that can not only heal her heart. . .
                            . . . but heal her soul

Very nice, Sven....
You know I love structured verse - toss in a little romance - a little imagery....
I'm pretty easy to please...
Nice work, my friend... ...

Sven...I like the format you chose to display this particular piece with. It could have very well been written of me as I see myself in your words here. I like the optomistic ending to it
