I will never forget the way I felt when he shut me out.
When he told me he could never love me.
But I just couldn't let go.
With each passing day
I put the broken pieces of my heart back together.
A week went by, then a month, and before I knew it, it had been a year.
I was beginning to think my heart would never be whole again.
But then you walked into my life.
You helped me find the pieces I was still missing.
I was so scared to let you in, to let myself love you.
But somehow you were different from all the others.
So, I began to put down my fences and let you in.
When I removed the lock that was blocking you,
You stole my heart away, right before my eyes.
Now, I'm trying to trust you with it for safekeeping,
Hoping you won't let me down.
But, I don't want you to feel obligated to keep it.
If you lose it, it won't be your fault.
Who knows... Maybe someday you'll find it. And if you do...
