It Breaks Your Heart - Poem by Juan Olivarez

It breaks your heart to love someone,
And know it cannot be.
Even though her heart you've won,
And in your soul, you hold the key.

But be it fate or destiny,
That keeps you far away.
Your soul will never be set free,
Not till your dying day.

And so you keep it deep inside,
Where no one else can see.
Somewhere deep down you let it hide,
For it can never be.

So endlessly you carry on,
In foul weather or fair.
Until your days at last are gone,
For it's the cross that you must bear.
