To Be ~ Uwais Coetzee

You and I were meant to be ,
'To love and to hold'
'Till death do us part' I always used to think.
I loved you with every bone in my body
Every organ , every limb
But every time I looked at you ,
You looked at him.
Everything broke within me,
Shattered like glass
I thought 'How could you do this?'
'Do this to me?'
I thought all rivers made it back to the sea.
I was lost, I was gone,
I didn't know what to do.
Didn't know if I wanted to see next week
Or even tomorrow.
People say follow your heart
But if it's broken , which piece do you follow ?
