A Heart Torn In Two
Into the world came another, brought to earth by her caring mother,
Named perfectly by her loving father,
Looked after, Cared for, loved for five years
Then IT happens.
She sits hopelessly in a lit room, her father at one end, her mother at the other,
A tear in her parents eyes,
All of a sudden a tear comes to hers too,
It slowly runs down her cheek,
She doesn't understand,
But she sees her dads suitcase in the corner of the room,
She Now knows, she screams,
Why is this happening to me,
'It's for the best, ' her mum says,
But she replies by crying more and running to her room
The last day came, it was finally over,
There was nothing left for her parents to cling onto,
Leaving her stuck in the middle, to choose who to be with,
But then she realizes,
She has no choice,
She has to be with her mum.
As she watched her dad walk out of her front door, she cried,
It will never be the same again,
She will never be the same again,
Her dad chucked his suitcase in the back of his van,
And took one last look and waved, before leaving
Before long there was another,
Someone in her house with her and her mum,
Who was he?
Was he the one that took dad away? No, but it felt like it
Is he the one that mum loves so dearly? Yes he is!
she sees her dad every now and again,
He's happily engaged and soon will be getting married,
she is happy as long as both her mum and dad are happy too,
But she will always remember the day her heart was torn in two.
