Lonesome Heart - Poem by Bill Simmons

Play Poem Video

The mighty oak I see outside
It's roots are deep and long
It will live a hundred years
And bend when winds are strong

I sometimes feel I can't go on
Losing you is hurting me
I sometimes wish late at night
I had the strength of that old tree

The days my friends they stand by me
They tend to help me through
But then at night when darkness falls
Again I'm missing you

I try to fight but strength won't come
Soon I fall apart
Then the tears fall like rain
So alone is a lonesome heart

I sometimes wish I had the strength
To pick up and move along
But memories that I have with you
Streaches the nights so long

I sometimes wish I had the strength
So I would not fall apart
Missing you is against my will
So alone is a lonesome heart.
