Taking Chances


A heart, a heart
Such a fragile thing
A risk to give away
And yet we share
It bit by bit
In pieces,
Every day

A heart, a heart
Such a tender thing
Once broken,
Never quite the same
But we cannot love
And keep hearts intact
So we love
And love again

A heart, a heart
Such a treasure-chest
And oh,
What riches it holds
The memory of whispers
And smiles; a kiss
More priceless
Than rivers of gold

A heart, a heart
It comes apart
But oh,
Time heals again
So live and laugh
And love
…and lose
We never love in vain
