My Missing Piece
Tuesday, March 13, 2012 6:33 AM
You told me you loved me,
Told me you would never leave.
You told me I was your everything,
So why did you leave me like this?
You told me I was beautiful,
I told you my heart was yours.
You held it a while, made me feel safe,
Then you broke it where all the world could see.
I tried to find the pieces
To glue them back together,
But I could not find the last piece.
Someone better must be keeping it safe
Until he can return it to me.
