I just thought I'd share this with you all to see if anyone recognized it.


You'll meet many just like me upon life's busy streets
With shoulders stooped and heads bowed low and eyes that stare in defeat
For souls that live within the past where sorrow plays all parts
For a living death is all that's left for men with broken hearts

You have no right to be the judge, to criticize and condemn
Just think that but for the grace of God it would be you instead of him
One careless step, a thoughtless deed and then the misery starts
And to those who weap, death comes cheap these men with broken hearts

Humble you should be when they come passing by
For it is written that the greatest men never get to big to cry
Some lose faith in love and life when sorrow shoots her darts
With hope all gone they walk alone these men with broken hearts

You've never walked in that man's shoes
or saw things throough his eyes
Or stood and watched with helpless hands
while the heart inside you dies
Some were paupers , some were kings
and some were master's of the arts
But in their shame they're all the same these men with broken hearts

Life sometimes can be so cruel that a heart will pray for death
God, why must these living dead know pain with every breath
So help your brother along the road no matter where he starts
For the god that made you made them too, these men with broken hearts

Don't recognize, but can surely associate with it!... One can just as readily substiture the word "women"....

A man with a broken heart,
has been so wounded so distraught,

I wish I could heal his pain,
Put him back together again,

Show the world the best man he could be,
Through my love given unselfishly,

His hurts are many, along with his tears,
his trust was emptied, now he has fear,

A sparrow with a broken wing,no longer can fly,
He feels so depressed he wants to die,

Wait he must, for a chance,
To embark on the perfect romance,

For True love is waiting to find his heart,
To heal it, mend it,never again to tear it apart,

Someday, someway love will find you,
Once again, like never before,

This love will be the other half of two,
This is my prayer that I leave for you..

For out of a mans brokeness,
comes strength, wisdom, and maturity,

Just open up, let it go...be free my sparrow, be free...


 "Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O,no! it is an ever-fixed mark....William Shakespeare

Thanks everyone. I would like to say I am not trying to take credit for this poem.
I DID NOT WRITE THIS, Hank Williams did.
I just wanted to share it with you guys.
Thanks for listening though.

~One careless step, a thoughtless deed and then the misery starts~ Been there, done that!
Romantic Heart...For out of a mans brokeness,
comes strength, wisdom, and maturity,  ~ This is so very true!
