My Broken Heart

Now my tears

are not to mourn

what I lost

but what you

threw away.

You are not

beyond loving;

you are not too dark

to love the light.

You don’t think

you deserve happiness,

but that is a lie.

You deserve it more

than most of us

because you have

gone out of your way

to bring happiness to others.
