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
