Heavy Heart - Poem by Chester H. Reeve

When your heart feels awful heavy and your mind from trouble not.
There's always someone who loves you and loves you a great lot,
When the smile is for real and the earrings are in place,
That's the time you look lovely and would win in any race,
When you're hurting on the inside and things seem to fall apart,
You make believe on the outside but just can't get a fresh start.
Yes, an aching heart is something no doctor can ever mend,
And many a beautiful heart will always twist and bend,
But when the telephone rings or the right person says, "Hi"
The joyful feeling you get and it ends with a happy sigh,
The heart begins to sing and with a real smile on your face,
The world is nice and bright and everything falls into place.
