I Found My Heart

I found my heart
It was laying where I'd left it
On the path, in the shadows
Of the trees

I found my heart
Laying on the damp ground
In among ferns and curling
Ivy leaves

I found my heart
It was cracked
And pieces were scattered
Glittering gold

I found my heart
A bit for you and a bit for me
Love leaking out
Staining the ground red

I found my heart
Impossible pieces
Cutting my fingers as
I picked them up

I found my heart
There's no word
That would craft out of these shards
A new whole heart

I found my heart
And I left it there
Among
The shadowy trees
