A Broken Heart

I wanted you,

Right from the start,

Hear the beat of this broken heart.

Now you're gone,

It's not to be,

Why were you taken from me?

My baby is gone,

My life goes on,

My heart still beats,

But there's a distance in me.

I wanted you I really do,

Little baby in heaven,

This mummy loves you.

by Marie Menzies
