Once you told me, “Don’t worry my Princess, I will protect you so no one can do you harm.”
But unbeknownst to me, that very shield shattered my heart.
It left me confused, distraught, and hurt.
For a while I thought it will never heal.
However, as time flies, I slowly picked up the pieces and put it back together.
For some time, it was fragile, the wound was still fresh but healing.
Then one day from afar I saw you,
You were laughing at something your companion said.
Not only were you laughing but your eyes were also smiling.
You are in love.
I was looking for the pain and hatred I once felt and there were neither.
I smiled to myself and sighed.
I may have a scarred heart but I know that it can love again.
You know why?
Because it was able to forgive.
