Hearts That Never Mend

Last night I dreamed of muted sounds

where echoes have no end

Which came from sorrows people face

with hearts that never mend


They follow down the path that leads

through shadows of despair

Beyond the stream of tears they've cried

to the field that leads nowhere


Where the sobs are only memories

that haunt without a word

And bring to life the distant past

of voices never heard


But in the forest of the lost

are trees of lonesome pain

Which mark the passing of the ones

who've ever loved in vain


To escape you must remember

that Death's your only friend

From all the sorrow's people face

with hearts that never mend
