She looked at the pieces of her broken heart,
scattered across the ground.
To her, love would always be forever,
until the end of time and beyond.
Oh, what did he do when she surrendered,
all and gave him her heart?
He took all and left her with nothing,
and now she felt unable to carry on.
She was his angel, until he mistreated her,
and broke her wings this time.
Oh, how could he rip her feathers out one at a time,
so she could not fly?
She bowed her head and prayed,
“Oh my God, what did I do this time?”
She tried to sort thing out and when she could not,
she begin to cry.
"Oh, if I had only loved him more,
I know this would not have happened!
Maybe I was too selfish,
and really did not pay enough attention to him."
Before long, she convinced herself that,
she caused everything to happen.
Then deep in her soul her spirit said,
“You did your best to love him."
She stopped blaming herself,
and realized sometimes love is not enough.
Many things can go wrong and when it does,
there are two hearts broken.
It was then she realized the passion was lost,
and her love was not enough.
When love is lost, God replaces things lost,
and mends what was broken.
