Bleeding Heart

Drip

Drip

Dripping

Goes the bleeding heart

 

Aching, wounded

Emotionally battered

Physically broken

 

Friend, foe, neighbor, stranger

Oh the bleeding heart

Beautifully indiscriminate

 

As woe begets woe
    the masses lost in their turmoil

Sleepless be the bleeding heart

 

Loudest when all is silent

For the beating heart

 

Outstretched hand for
   those damned,
   forgotten,
   marginalized souls

 

Oh gentle touch

Reaching out

Calming hand on a shoulder

 

Drip Drip Dripping

To help carry the load

 

Drip Drip Dripping

To see that smile

 

Drip Drip Dripping

To see you through

 

Ever connected

Bleeding the wounds of others

 

Empathy, pure and true

A bleeding heart for you
