What Do You Do?


What do you do when your world falls apart?
How do you pick up the pieces to make a fresh start?

How do you cope with rejections you didn't see coming
And deal with someone who's constantly running?

What do you do when things change at the drop of a dime,
And you realize you have run out of time?

What do you do in spite of the feelings you shared,
when you have to become painfully aware that they are gone
and are no longer there?

You pick up the pieces as best you can
and walk forward with your eyes fixed above.
You don't look back as hard as it is,
for that's when you trip and fall all over again.

How do you walk forward when you've left your heart behind
with the person you loved but who is no longer by your side?

What do you do when your world falls apart?
You pick up the pieces, pray and try to make a fresh start.

But how do you pick up the pieces when they are
scattered so far apart?
