Your Heart Broke When I Said I Had to Leave You
Music: Fugue in C# Minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Your heart broke when I said I had to leave you|
To serve our country somewhere far away.
But every day tells me how much I love you,
And how I'll mend it once I'm home to stay.
For life is but a dream, and we the dreamers,
So dream with me these empty months of sorrow
