Not wishing to hang up
Let it be there
May sprout some buds
Any greenery is fair

It will take as long
To mend my heart
It is where it belongs
But now broken apart

As much as broken pieces
That ruined my day
Might appear frivolous
But my mind's in disarray

Faith uppermost in feelings
Beautiful flowers will appear
To whisper sweet nothings
A pleading for me to hear

Rekindle the fire in you
Let the flames roar
Not something new
Seen it before
