A broken heart away

She was my first love until it ended
It would last forever I believed
Was it the childish words that so offended
Or were we by our youth just being deceived.
I couldn't do a thing to stop you leaving 
Though I remember hoping you would stay 
but the final words I spoke I still believe in 
I will never be more than a broken heart away.

The memories of that love are still with me 
Loving feelings in my heart are tightly cleft
All around me I see a beautiful history 
Reminders of our love before you left.
Ornaments and pictures on the mantle 
Each a memory I can touch
I have even saved all the scented candles 
and the bible pressed rose you loved so much.

Now I'm hearing your new man has betrayed you 
I heard he hit you and you lived a life of hell 
You now know not a word he spoke has proven true
Since the day he first cast his evil spell.
I'm told you would come back if I asked you 
Nevermore would you feel the need to stray 
This time it would be forever and you'll be true
and you are only a broken heart away .

My friendship is there if you should need me 
My shoulder is yours if you wish to cry
All I own is given to you freely 
but I'm afraid my love I cannot lie 
My broken heart has now mended 
Though scarred by the bitter years of pain
What we shared has truly ended
I just cannot put my heart through that again ,

Wow Darren this is so deep and full of emotion. I am sure many of us can relate back to our first loves and wonder how something so amazing went so wrong. The hurt you show in the final verse brought tears to my eyes. Shes truly a lucky lady to have a friend like you should she need. Hugs as ever my friend. Jan xxxx
