I am giving you my heart
Be careful, it's fragile
You see, I got hurt a long time ago
And it's the hurt that keeps on hurting
I've told myself a million times
I could never love again
You broke my spell,
You've healed my wounds
And now I'm scared
of what the future may bring
I cried myself to sleep last night
Not tears of pain (for once)
But tears of the knowledge,
The realization
That I am happy
And when you embraced me
And whispered in my ear
"Nothing is gonna hurt you baby
You have no need to fear"
I was in extacy
You brought it forth
Straight out of me
You reached into the depths of my soul
And brought out the person I have hidden for so long
You let me be me
That's all I've ever wanted,
That's all I've ever needed,
You've given me more
Than you give yourself credit for
You taught me to love again
You taught me to be free,
You taught me to smile and laugh....
You took all of my weaknesses
And looked past them all
You took all of my strenghths
And made them stronger
When I go to sleep at night
You're the one that's on my mind
When I wake up again
You're the first thing that I find
No longer am I timid
No longer am I dismal
I just look to the stars and think
I have you
You have me
We have eachother
That's all we need
You bring up a happieness
I forgot I had
You show me a life in which
I used to think was bad
But now I see the truth behind it
Aside from my casualties
The only thing I ask of you
Is just don't hurt me please......

*I know this one isn't that good...but please keep in mind that I'm new at writing about happieness, so I'm still trying to get the hang of it.

This isn't bad for someone who is new to writing lighter things. I enjoued it, SorrowsMystress. Glad that things are looking up now!
