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
