HEART WOUNDS, by            
First Line: Cold steel may penetrate the flesh
Last Line: The scar -- will long remain.


Cold steel may penetrate the flesh,
The wound may throb and smart,
But far more painful are the wounds
Inflicted on the heart.

Soothing balm may cease the pain
That body-blows impart
But what can heal the deep-cut wounds
Inflicted on the heart?

Yes -- marks upon the flesh will fade,
Forgotten with the pain,
But when the heart is wounded thus,
The scar -- will long remain.
