Broken Heart

I fell in love with a boy named John He broke the branches of my heart It was that painful, but life must go on I dust myself and head for a fresh start I fell in love with a boy named Jarvis He broke the branches of my heart Mama told me there would be days like this So I dust myself and head for a fresh start I again fell in love with a boy named Frank Hmm! I parted with a broken heart He left the pages of my life blank And said, “Young lady you can now depart” I'm thinking of taking my final bow I want to move on and take a big stride Yet, am feeling very depressed now This depression has eaten all of my pride Every day, I hear people talk about love I see people in love and wonder “why can’t I?” I see people like me express their love And I wonder and ask “why can’t I?” Friends mock and laugh at me So I put myself in a very little box Where I can be alone and be free To me this is a yoke, because I feel like a fox I'm thinking of someone who has my best interest in mind His unswerving love echoes through my heart His love is kind not selfish, greedy and blind Thank you Jesus for repairing the broken branches of my heart The Poet Preacher © 2013
