Deception Of The Heart - Poem by Bill Simmons

As I look out my window
I see the wind blow through the leaves
And as I look up at the sky
I see the clouds as they drift by

I see birds as they fly
And squirrels as they play in trees
And as I do I wonder why
Oh why, could I not see, decieved

Oh how, could I not know
Oh how, could I not see
I believed with all my heart
And by the heart was decieved

I held my world
Right here in my two hands
Then all at once it's gone away
Not sure I understand

I believed in love
I believed in the heart, every part
How could I not see
Deception of the heart

How could I not know
Doesn't love have it's rules
It can bring you such happiness
Or treat you, so very cruel

And why was I
So blind, I could not see
My world as it slipped away
Slowly, In front of me

Oh how, could I not know
Oh how, could I not see
I believed with all my heart
And by the heart was decieved.
