Broke My Heart

Broke My Heart

~~~~~~~~~~

how i longed for home
boarding school one whole term
broken heart lost love

.
eleven year old
deported against my will
my parents too

.
unbeknown new
a rule that hurt us all
weekend disasters

.
to far to travel
one day there one day back
no time for visits

.
homesick lonely nights
my parents too were crying
a whole term dying

.
summer break and home
empathy resolved my straits
home loving parents

.
while I was there
respite for me was nature
now still besotted

.
long story cut short
as back then was a life time
despair misery

.
now a happy home
a wife three children
grand and great too

.
like all we face
trials and tribulations
together resolved

.
my life back then invoked
by you and a old song
both invoking tears

The First Verse@

I’m nobodies child
Nobody wants me
I’m nobodies child
Just like a flower
I’m growing wild
I’ve no mummies kisses
And no daddies smiles
Just like a flower
I’m growing wild
