A heartbreak is like a fence
You have the pieces
You build
And build
Every nail an "I love you"
Until everything you worked for
Is finished
You love
You have earned it
Then the problem strikes
The gust of wind
It is too great
And the pieces you worked for are gone
You would do anything to get them back
But you lie there broken
But you'll get up
You'll find them again
And settle down
Where it's quiet
And you're stronger than before
And you know
Too build your fence stronger
Until true love is the only thing
That passes through

    But you still have the pieces to work with. Very well expressed.
