A Baby Heals A Broken Heart

I had a friend
a few years now ago
she helped me stay in life
when I wanted to go
this simple thing she said
that stuck with me

'A baby heals a broken heart'

Though it was some time ago
I've had much time to heal and grow
Still, the sadness lingers and doesn't go
and I dream of love I want to know
Wondered if she was just jokin'

That a baby can heal a heart that's broken

I wonder if I'm too old
But really inside I still feel young
Even though I've fallen off life's ladder
and have to start again at a lowly rung
I wish somehow for a special someone
Hope there is such a one

But more than fun I wonder most earnestly
if maybe it's possible for me to start a family
I know much now about being a father
and it was to me the nicest part of life
to have a baby and to imagine a true loving wife
and I hope somehow there is a maybe

Because I think my heart has room for a baby

That friend and I were eventually parted
but this heart, her kindness re-started
Inside of me is still that thought
Maybe it's for naught
But right now it's all I've got
Perhaps it's not to late
I'll just have to see and wait

Nothing else has seemed to do the trick
Yet, she was pretty grounded and smart
maybe I should hold together my heart
for someday when it won't fall apart
Love may yet find me and give me a frest start
If there is one who will love sincerely and not part

and maybe
a baby
if it's God's will
to bless us with that joy
of a little girl or boy
because a baby, I'm told, can heal a broken heart
