A human heart

If my heart were a string, I would tie it round your little finger
If it were a stone, I would build you a shelter, to keep you from the cold
If I could, I would give it to you to hold forever

If that heart could speak, it would tell you of its love
If it could walk, it would search for you till the ends of the earth
If it were a bird, it would fly into the heavens and fetch you a star

But alas, it is only a human heart
It falters and breaks as it struggles with its own weight
It forgets to love sometimes and keeps a record of wrongs

This human heart, does not always love enough
Or love as it should
If you are patient though, maybe it will one day love as you wish
