It's all I have to give
This heart with which I live
A love pure, honest, and true
Is all I have to offer you

So what shall it be love?
Take my heart and soar above?
Or are you afraid to know
The depth of love I show?

Now love, yours is the choice
Open your ears, hear my voice
This heart with which I live
It's all I have to give

It may be all you've got to give, but WHAT a gift....     She is one extremely lucky lady to have your heart in her hands.  This was a beautiful poem.

Take that heart and Soar as high as one can!
What a wonderful gift to offer someone.
Not easy to do these days.
Though, I think she already owns it!  
Great poem Sven!

That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Sven, I really enjoyed this piece. It had a gentle whisper to it, said on a quiet walk or by the light of a candle.

Such sincerity, in a most gentle way.  Certainly derserving of a sincere answer.  A truly lovely piece from the King of romance.
