Broken Heart

Broken Heart

If love was looking for a place to live, why can’t it move into your heart.
You have the time, the space, and grace to give it a start.
The reason why love can’t move into my heart,
Because love used to live here and it tore my heart apart.

So, if it’s looking for a new place to live let it move into your heart.
You have the time, the space, and grace to give it a brand-new start.
So, the answer to your question, love can’t live here anymore,
Because it tore my heart apart, and I refuse to let love function – in my broken heart.

The Historic Free Burying Ground of Frankford

Thanks to Joe Menkevich, noted Northwood Historic Researcher, Wilmot Playground (also known as The Square) has been nominated for inclusion on the Philadelphia register of Historic Places.

As you can read in the full text of the nomination (here), the Burying Ground, which dates to 1811,  lies below Wilmot Park.  It was in active use as a cemetery through the early 1900s.
