My heart

by Mahalia Butler   Oct 17, 2017

Once upon a time
I had a beautiful heart
It was big, loving and kind
So I gave to him a part

I thought he would appreciate
I thought he would cherish
I thought he would treasure
But only felt it perish

I found my heart again
Broken, bleeding, and crushed
Now not ever again
A he will I trust.

Then along came you
You helped heal my heart
You fixed it up with care
So it no longer hurt

You held it together
Close to your heart
Promising as long as you have it
It will never fall apart.
