You Melted My Heart…
You promised you’d always stand right by my side,
While holding my hand and being my guide.
You promised there was nothing I couldn’t share with you,
That your ears were all mine and to simply be true.
But the offer you made me seemed too good to believe,
So I would hesitate and hold back different parts of me,
Trying to see if your words were in fact the real deal,
While peering into your heart to see if you were for real.
You would smile when you’d catch me peeking in at your heart,
You would even open yours wider so I could see every part,
Of the sweet love you reserved there for me alone,
Melting even more of my heart that had once been all stone.
This is what you have continued to do from the start,
Surrounding me with your love so you could melt my whole heart,
So that instead of carrying a heavy heart made of stone,
You showered me with pure love and showed me I wasn’t alone.
You never gave up even when I pushed you away,
No matter what I did you would always stay.
You would even scoop me up and surround me with you,
Which is when I discovered that you had magic too.
Because somehow you broke through despite all of my walls,
And day after day you continued to make my heart fall,
So that now my heart is no longer made up of stone and tears,
Or consumed with lots of doubts and fears.
I no longer wonder if I will die from a broken heart,
Because you somehow gently mended it part by part,
Until I was able to feel our sweet love all around,
No longer feeling lost but miraculously found.
Now instead of running from you I run straight into your embrace,
With a heart full of love and a smile upon my face.
No longer hiding but instead showing you my whole heart,
Mirroring the love you’ve shown me right from the very start.
