A Broken Piece of Heart

Shattered piece of heart

You said you loved me dearly.
I thought you meant it truly.
So I gave you my heart wholly.
But you had it broken in pieces.

It was almost getting too late
Before I knew you were not so different
From the many others before you:
Self-seeking, lustful and deceitful.

You did me more harm than good
You left me worse than you met me
With scars so wide and so deep
Till I became a shadow of myself.

For many years, I went about my life
With a broken piece of heart, bleeding.
No one could fill the great void I felt
Or mend the awfully shattered part of me.

But then I met the greatest Friend and Lover
Who truly loved me as I am, unconditionally.
The One who gave up His life for me
And gave me a brand new heart too.
