the Heavy Heart
(in memory of Shawna Corson part 2)

A heart for most is never given a thought
A heart to many is rarely ever sought.
The heart that I carry became heavy and dark
when he took my daughter by a bullet through
her heart.

Her laughs her smile,her hugs and kisses too
are only in my dreams now because she''s with
"You Know Who"

Now it''s just me in this life as we know it
my hurt, my pain, I wish I could let go of it.

The time will come when I will feel free,
and lift this burden that''s too heavy for me.
My daughter, my life for seventeen years,
came and gone with the wipe of my tears.

So hold your kids and hold them tight, while
 you never know when they''ll take their flight.

A heavy heart will never go away, but will get
lighter with each passing day.
I look forward to the day my child and
I will meet to stay,

Because even though you've gone away..
we''ll be together again someday.
