Please take good care of my heart
'Cause I'm leaving it with you
Every moment we're apart
Makes me oh so blue
So take good care of my heart
Please don't let it break
If we never meet again
That's a chance I have to take

I give you all my love
One encounter at a time
When we aren't together
I slowly lose my mind
My memories of you
Are all that keep me sane
So take good care of my heart
Until we meet again

Tell me you'll always love me
Please don't say good-bye
Though we may be far apart
I see you when I close my eyes
The way your body trembled
When I ran my fingers through your hair
When I close my eyes and dream at night
I can still see you lying there

I give you everything I have
In exchange for nothing but your love
Holding on to those memories
Having faith that God above
Will one day answer my prayers
And we will be together again
So take good care of my heart
Till that day we meet again

Jeffrey,

I know this one came from the heart my friend.  It is romantic and wonderful writing.  The love shines through.  You have a heart of gold my friend.  I hope she takes care of it and that you meet again soon.  The end is perfect.  Hang onto that hope.

Straight from the heart Jeffery...excellent ...expressions so tenderly offered to your best friend and lover.....It got me thinking how lonely a person would be without this kind of love.

Take care......ethome..
