Broken but Not Broke
You promised to always love me and be by my side
Now you have broken all your promises and no longer stand by me
Why could I not see that we were not meant to be?
You walked out without an explanation and only blame.
You left me broken and full of shame.
You said I was not a good wife,
And you put all of the unhappiness in your life on me.
I thought I would never be able to go on
And now I am so strong.
You left me shattered, and feeling worthless
That was then and this is now,
I have since learned that I have a purpose.
At the time I could not see past my shame.
I could not see you weren't meant for me.
I do not regret all we shared but will never forget all of the pain.
I believe you were put in my life to give me my daughter
I was unable to give birth to a child of my own, God must have known.
I thank you for Katrina's love.
She is gift from up above.
A year has past and I have survived
I managed to pick up all the pieces and maintain my pride.
You did not break me.
It is now that I see… We were not meant to be.
