A piece of me

A piece of me
Is all I have to give;
A heart with gaping holes
Is all I have left;
Pieces of me are
Strewn along the path
To here- to you,
If you will have me.


I will not promise to
Always think of you;
I feel the twinge of pain                                                                                                                                                                                                From the scars on my heart
And remember the one that
Has a piece of me still.
But this I promise,
You will always be my priority.


Sometimes, you will catch me
Wistful, and in a far away world,
Sometimes, I will be aloof
Nursing my pain,
Know that, even in those moments,
I take you with me;
You are my anchor,
My link to happiness.


I will bemoan my loss,
Wail over my pain,
Sigh at the sight of the scars,
Only because I wish
My heart was whole, for you;
You, my dear, deserves my all-                                                                                                                                                                                       My pure, pristine heart, not this-
Not this ragged remains, that I offer,
If you will have me

  5. This is a classic from a heart in transition- from pieces to peace!
    I know of a moving song with this same title from one young upcoming music producer. This piece actually ‘moves’the way that song does.

    Topazo, you have actually captured the essence of divine simplicity in one Being awakening in relation to another being .
