Bleeding Heart




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,
   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
