A Broken Man


A love that’s been lost
A love not meant to be
That seems to be the story
That was written just for me

Love was always close at hand
But I just couldn’t get a hold
What a sad editorial
When the story of my life is told

I was never mean to woman
I just couldn’t stay true
I would love one lady
All the time, looking for someone new

So that is why love has never lasted
It wasn’t them it was me
When I look into the mirror
A broken man is all I see

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
