There was light outside when I first saw you. Tonight, there is none but I will still see you inside my heart. When the world cannot touch you, the heart is still full of you. Tonight, I see you in your own light. I played with you in the nursery. My play toys but broke during the storm. Never mind Let it be I’d rather play in your heart. While the violin string broke, the string in the heart is still taut.
