Found



A fair heart once found
In a place of darkness and fear
Sought a peace
That could only come from love

A fair heart once hurt
From a lover's betrayal
Sought to hurt
That would only ease his own pain

A fair heart once broken
From a lack of hope
Sought a truth
That should be found in another

A fair heart once lost
From a broken heart
Sought a dream
That could bring him joy and happiness

A fair heart once sad
From an unknown fate
Sought to love
That would make him complete

A fair heart once cried
For he lost himself
Sought to live
That would change his ways

He learned to live
He learned to love
A fair heart he was and is
He is found
