My Baby Left Me For Another

My baby left me for another
My heart is now in asunder
I feel like committing murder
My soul has been stricken with thunder

What did I do to deserve this?
What has went wrong without my knowing
How can I tell this to my niece?
Because she always warned me of men’s doing

My baby left me for another
I noticed but I couldn’t ponder
On what I saw that made me wonder
She was a friend but no longer

Why is this hurting me so much?
Why do I miss him so much as such?
Is it because I gave my heart to him in full
Or because I was in love with him like a fool

My baby left me for another
He said he will care for me like a Mother
He said he will look after me like a Brother
He also said he will take care of me like a Sister

My friend with her presence his love she bought
For I have deserted him for too long at naught
I have lost my treasure and it’s all but my fault
Now I have realized my mistake in my thought
For I am the reason my baby left me for another

    Okay first, beautiful girl do not blame your self.

    I loved the frequent rhyming as I read through. I loved the stanza about loving like a mother protecting like a brother the most. Guys have and will forever be defined by all their unfilled promises.
    Nice sweet poem. Good job and keep it up. I think you’re new here because I haven’t read other work by you so here we go, welcome to NS…

    Thanks for liking the poem @ufuomaotebele. I’m kind of new here but I have previously written two poems titled “If i tell you something” and “Free of bonds and chains”.

    Or you’re one of the choirs/music guys in your high sch. ? ‘Cos is like you are used to the use of rythm

      I like using rhymes and rhythm a lot probably because of my music background. Thanks @abdulquadri11
