paper hearts...

Paper hearts can fade in time
Lose their color when love wont shine
Paper hearts can rip and tear
Even if nobody’s there
Paper hearts can catch on fire
A spark or match or it’s own desire
Paper hearts are not that strong
On paper hearts I wrote love songs
Paper hearts are all around
Blowing in the wind - scattered on the ground
If a paper heart is a heart you hold
You’ve got to know it’s worth more than gold

Paper hearts are children’s dreams
A poets words, a lover’s screams
Paper hearts are your hopes and fears
Paper hearts are your joys and tears
Paper hearts are all I see
Lonely paper hearts chasing after me
Paper hearts get blown away
If love’s not strong enough to make them stay
Paper hearts are all around
Blowing in the wind - scattered on the ground
If a paper heart is a heart you hold
You’ve got to know it’s worth more than gold
it's cheesy... but there it is...

It's a cute poem. Yes, I said "cute." BTW, paper hearts are fun and inexpensive to make. I gave decorated paper hearts to several friends on Valentine's. They loved them. One time I put little pink foil hearts all over my girls' room.

Paper hearts can be torn into lots of bits and pieces. The pieces are given away, never to return. Often when a person does find "the one," what's left of their paper heart can be very small. God is the only healer of hearts such as these.
