My Homeless Heart


What a beautiful star,

Always shinning like no other,

For me she was my heart’s altar,

For her I was her brother.


I saw her going across the rainbow,

In search of the career of her life,

I remember bending my elbow,

And thinking she will be a wonderful wife.


Soon after she left that day,

I felt a very deep sadness,

No more smiles to display, 

As my heart was then homeless.
