How different life would be if a heart could speak
How differently would we hear voices then
How different would be our ideas of beauty
And how different would be our attraction
How loud would be the voice if one were to break
How quiet would be the person who walked without a heart
How radiant would be the man who gave and gave
How different would things be right from the start.
How happy would one be, if things felt were simply told
How content would we be to hear words difficult to say
But would we be happier if our hearts could speak?
Or would the pain make us wish it was locked away?
