My heart is broken in a million pieces

Like the shining bits of a doctors thesis

Sparkling like stars in the dark some night

Showing the way to another days light.

I hesitate to step into another realm

Wanting to know the man at the helm

He seems far away and without care

Unable with me a life to share.

Return to me, my sweet, gentle dove

Put into my breast the sound of love

Then I will be sure of future reprieve

The temples of affection never leave.
