Old Hearts Can Be Broken - Poem by David Whalen


Yes…Even old hearts
can be broken
Tis true that love
Cares not of age
That same fire of youth
Still bears the truth
Of the flame that still
Within doth rage…

Old hearts can still lead
The mind astray…
When wants and needs
Must have their way
When the season of reason
Leads one to passion
Age is no matter
Love will have it’s day…

Old hearts can still race
At a furious pace
At a touch…
At a glimpse…
Of a quite special face
And the consequence which
Is not often spoken…
And that is…Yes!

Oh yes! …Even old hearts
…can be broken…
