The Gift of Ones Heart
by Penny Leigh Engel

It is for you... that I would do anything
For you have captured my heart...
You hold it within your hands, my love...
And you have from the very start.
                     ~~~~
You have presented me with a treasure...
One that I hold to so dear...
You've shared with me your heart, love
And I keep it with me here.
                     ~~~~
I promise it's held in safe keeping...
And I will not allow it to break,
I will handle it ever so gently...
Taking care not to make a mistake...
                      ~~~~
It is safe here with me, love, I promise
And will be treated with much love and care...
You can trust me to keep it so safely
While apart... I here and you there.
                       ~~~~
Then one day we shall join our hearts, love
And you'll see what great care I did take...
How I handled your heart so gently
And never allowed it to break.
