Ready to love again

You had no idea

Just how precious it was

What you held in your hands

But you threw it all away

Only learning now what it was you had

You never believed

You’d have it so good again

But loving you was painful

You brought me to my knees

Your love of me

Just meant I had to leave

How come those 3 words

Were so easy to fall from your lips,

When I believed that showing you

was so much better instead?

 

You had no idea

Just how precious it was

What you held in your hands

But you threw it all away

Only learning now what it was you had

You made feel so empty inside

You left me feeling cold

Your love was very public

You liked to own me, so I was off bounds

But what did you do to ever keep me,

To make me feel safe and sound?

You stopped caring for me

And in turn ‘true’ love left too

You filled your life with other passions

One’s more important than your bride

So what was I to do,

But quietly die inside?

 

You had no idea

Just how precious it was

What you held in your hands

But you threw it all away

Only learning now what it was you had

You took me for granted,

Never believing that I might leave

You thought I’d stay forever

Be contented with my lot

But you’d stripped me down naked

Naked to my bones

You took nearly everything I’ve got

And even then, it still wasn’t enough.

 

You had no idea

Just how precious it was

What you held in your hands

But you threw it all away

Only learning now what it was you had

I once was your queen,

And once you treated me as such

But then suddenly you stopped

And replaced me with other things to love

How was I to compete with that?

There was nothing left that I had

You made me feel unlovable

When you didn’t see me, anymore

You left me with a hollow heart

You emptied out my soul

 

You had no idea

Just how precious it was

What you held in your hands

But you threw it all away

Only learning now what it was you had

But I will be a queen again

This I feel for sure

And even through my doubting hours

I know I will love again

And next time I will love more
