He loved, he cared, he hurt

In the morning, in the night

She fought hard not to be upset

For she knew he loved, he cared


The day came unannounced

He was hurt, he was broken

She knew the turmoils disturbed

And yet she tried not to fret


She was hurt, she was broken

The turmoils grew and distance widened

Glasses of tears flowed

He loved more, he healed


He wasn’t there all the time

Caught in the mad web of broken, love and care

She cried, she forgave

Being broke only made her love more.
