Heartless pleas


How many times can one heart love
how often can it break
before we learn to let go of
the heartaches, the mistake
we made for oh so many times
and still we tend to give
to him who does not know the chime
of hearts where love exists
the passion always passes by
the blind and than too late
when deafened by their victimís cry
they realize their fate
but pages cannot be turned back
life cannot be relived
mistakes created bloodstained tracks
love they have forfeited
but still they fall down on their knees
beg to be forgiven
they never realize their pleas
cause hearts to start reliving.
