How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?


And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?

How can you stop the sun from shining?

What makes the world go round?

How can you mend this broken man?

How can a loser ever win?

Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

The Bee Gees recorded this timeless song on January 28, 1971 in London. The Gibb brothers actually wrote the song in 1970 but sharp differences alienated their creative, familial connection until they reconciled and reconvened to record their Trafalgar album.


I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees, And misty memories of days gone by.


Lyric websites list this song in the "sad songs" genre. It is a sad song. "Misty memories of days gone by..." Picture London: rain, misty, gray, wet, cold. But if you look past the gloominess, there is an artistic, historic, beautiful city brimming with cafes, museums, and architecture built by people of extreme prowess.

The Gibb brothers pose several questions as timeless as their song. But the most important one is the first: "How can you mend a broken heart?" and they reaffirm the internal struggle by asking again and associating a broken heart with a hindered life.

Can someone really have a broken heart?

"Time may indeed mend a broken heart, but physical or emotional trauma can trigger an acute cardiac disorder tagged "broken heart syndrome," with symptoms mimicking heart attacks, according to Mayo Clinic researchers.

When the patients experience the stressful situations, the heart reacts to it and it makes the apex of the left ventricle change.

The good news is, it won't cause a very serious condition like permanent heart damage." (summary)

Broken heart syndrome is now recognized as an official diagnosis. How can BHS be treated?

"'Broken hearts' require treatment...

It is important, the doctors stress, to treat the symptoms of broken heart syndrome. Three of the 19 patients temporarily required a special balloon in the aorta to help the heart pump better. Broken heart syndrome usually requires only short-term treatment because the heart normally recovers by itself." http://www.ynhh.org/healthlink/cardiac/cardiac_5_05.html

Broken hearts need rest, support, and a lot of care. Is your heart broken? Has your spiritual heart been broken? Gloominess does not have to cloud your life with a gray, misty outlook.

Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:

He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. (Psalm 37:3-6 NIV)
