Gravely Ill

My Broken Heart

You were a grave

where I could bury

the hurt of my past.

But you were the one

who needed to lay

to rest all your pain.

Your condition is grave;

your hope is terminal;

your love has passed away.

I wish you didn’t ask me

to leave you for dead

because you deserve to live.
