She put her heart in his hands
 

She put her heart in his hands and he dropped

It. No greater carelessness can there be than to

Be trusted with a girl's most precious and most

Sacred possession and then not take care of it

 

Not give it the love it deserves. Nor cherish it

For all it's worth. But no, he dropped it. Not

Intentionally he didn't think, but still a bad case

Of butterfingers and then a momentary slip

And it was gone falling from too great a height

To survive. A poor defenceless loving heart once

So trusting and so fragile now tragically broken

 

Can this heart recover, will it mend? Is there still

Time or will this oversight always be a reminder

Not to trust wholeheartedly ever again? Sadly,

Only time will tell – but both hearts hope for

Better things in the future – together or apart
