What You Threw Away

My Broken Heart

If you only knew

what you threw away:

the love of a woman

who has never loved before.

I would have done

anything for you;

I would have gone

to the ends of the earth

to make you happy.

You gave up the love of a girl

because you didn’t believe it,

you didn’t think you deserved it.

But my love stays strong

because you were one of a kind:

your heart too beautiful

to be consumed by darkness.
