She wants so badly to love and to be loved
To be the only one in her manís heart
But will she ever believe him?
Can she ever believe him?

She cried when she found out about the others
Still she went back to him
Her heart soared when he spoke of his love for her
Still she doubted

Confident she could continue
Again he speaks of freedom
Again her heart breaks
Again the tears flow

Foolish to go back to him yet again?
Hopeful that maybe he will see?
Scared to give up?
Scared to stay?

The pain is almost more than she can bear
Hearing but never seeing his tears
Is she hanging on for love?
Should she let go for love?

The giddiness is gone
His voice no longer brings a smile to her face
Oh, but donít you doubt if she still loves him
She just loves herself more

She doesnít hate him for what he did
She doesnít hate him for how he is
She is only sorry for what will never be
But grateful for what they have shared

She struggles with her mind
Her mind struggles with her heart
Her heart struggles with her soul
She is in constant turmoil

Foolish to love him?
Hopeful to find another love more faithful than his?
Can she believe that it is out there?
Will she know it when it appears?

'Hearing but never seeing his tears', so typical of the male species. Anyway, I think that's the best line of the poem. It speaks of a dishonest heart, and there seems to be alot those.
