As a child I was carefree.
As a teen I was wild but still me.
In my twenties I lost my way.
It’s the truth. I have no words to say!
Then my thirties came and went.
What a waste of breathing.! A life badly spent!
I was broken and quite shattered.
I didn’t give a shit cause nothing mattered.
Who would love a shadow of who I once was?
Who would be okay with my ugly past?
Then came you into my life.
You said you saw me as your wife.
You saw past my bruises and my old needle marks.
You just loved me with all of your heart.
With you I didn’t feel shattered anymore!
Your love caressed me at my core.
You didn’t pimp me like others before.
You saw in me what I no longer saw.
I was beautiful and I was whole!
No longer broken despite the falls.
Your love came and set me free.
Thank you, thank you for loving me.
Story inspired by a patient’s story. Have a grand day.
