A promise from the heart for the one that makes you want to love again.

This smile on my face is just a disguise
To hid the loneliness I feel inside
I want somebody to love and to hold
But I’m scared to give my heart away
I’ve had too much heartache to explain
I’m terrified of getting hurt again
So if I give you my heart please be gentle with it
For it’s fragile and can easily break
I wanna know what true love feels like
But I’m scared to fall in love again
Because love has brought me so much pain
So if I do show you a little love
Promise me you’ll show a little love in return
So if you love me, love me true
And I promise I will love you.

    Never feel afraid to love. When it happens a promise is always from the heart but not always forever.
