A Boy in the Park

By Bruce Clifford

After you left I still stumbled through the park.
Hoped you would have shown up.
I sometimes stayed there until it turned dark.
Your silence changed me and tore me apart.
It inspired me to write a song called ďA Broken HeartĒ.

I was just a boy who missed you with all of my heart.
I was lost and destroyed.
A lonely boy in the park.

I was just a kid who never understood.
All the things we did.
The one thing we never withstood.

I was just a boy who missed you with all of my heart.
I was lost and destroyed.
A quiet boy in the park.

When you appeared decades after the fact.
I never forgot those days of the two of us where we sat.

After you left I still stumbled through that park.
Wished you would have shown up.
I sometimes stayed there until it turned dark.
Your silence changed me and tore me apart.
Iíve lived an entire life unable to mend this broken heart.
