I fell apart when I got lost.

A piece of me flew in the air, never to be found.

The rest of me is dead somewhere,

alone on frozen ground.

“Let go,” I begged,

because that's what you needed to hear. But it was a lie. 

“Hold me forever,” my heart whispered.

That's what I needed to say.

I fell apart when I lost you.

I thought nothing could be worse.

But now I fall apart every day.

Who will put me together, now that I lost you?
