WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR HEART BEHIND

She was seven when her family moved away…

She was sad…she didn’t know what to do

as she waved goodbye to all her friends

and the only home she ever knew.

 

Her parents said they have a nice new house

that she’d make new friends…

still she pined…

For how could she make new friends

when she left her heart behind?

 

 

They were married only 20 years

When his wife unexpectedly passed away…

He didn’t have time to say goodbye

To plead with her to stay…

 

Friends said he was still young

that he’d find another wife as gentle and as kind

but he knew that would be impossible

when he left his heart behind.

 

 

A loss of any kind is difficult…

when there is so much that we miss…

If there is anything we must remember…

we must remember this…

 

For anyone who experiences a loss

we must keep this in mind…

It’s never easy to move ahead

when you’ve left your heart behind.

 

So we must show them patience and love

For in their own time they will discover

That there is happiness ahead…

 

That their heart can and will recover.
