The Wall

There was a time in my life,
when my heart was an open book.
I laid out a world of love and trust,
only so that it could be shook.

That world was destroyed, as I was
broken, crushed and battered.
I gave up on love and hope,
after that, nothing mattered.

So, I built up a tall wall,
to protect my heart from another fall.
I wouldn't let her back in, never again,
no matter how much she would call.

At that time, I decided that I'd
never again let another in.
Then came the long cold process,
as my broken heart began to mend.

It may have healed to a point,
but, I never let another in.
No matter how hard they tried,
I wouldn't even let it begin.

They said they really loved me,
but, my wall was strong, tried and true.
It held fast and never let another see.
But, that all changed after I met you.

Like an angel, you came to me,
without an effort to break my wall.
Happy to see me and for us just to be,
somewhere in there, I watched it fall.

The wall I built so tall and strong,
easily crumbled down to the ground.
I had that wall around me so long,
when it was gone, my heart, I found.

Please know, that what I say is real.
My heart is yours and that is true.
I understand the way you feel.
But, trust me now, I do love you.

I won't push or pressure your heart.
Patiently, I'll show you how I feel.
Like me, I know you've been torn apart.
You'll see this love we have is real.

Your love for me, I know is true.
That is something I do not doubt.
I'll show you that mine is too.
Whatever it takes, I'll go that route.

Together, piece by piece, we'll break your
wall, as you have mine, then you will see.
My love will show and you will know,
that you and I were meant to be.

You're welcome Loves, glad you like it. Actually, we never really know that everything will be OK. But, we have to take a chance every now and then or we'll never find our true happiness. I don't mean to sound pessimistic here, more of a realism if you ask me. It takes a lot of trust and always doing the right thing. All we can do is, do our best and give our all and hope it all is OK, don't you think? Once the wall is down, it does leave us vulnerable, but, when it's up, we don't allow ourselves the opportunity to find/have/share true love. Love is a gamble and we have to play our cards right to come up on the winning end. I do all I can to play my cards right, by being true and fulfulling my other half in every way I can. No playing games, just being true and loving with all of my heart, that's all I can do, the rest lies in the hands of fate and her doing the same. Wouldn't you agree?

Luckily, I have found that love that I speak of and I plan on doing all I can to make sure everything is OK. I won't take it for granted and I won't ever forget that it takes constant nurturing to keep love alive. As with anything worth having, you have to take a chance, work at it and don't assume it will always just be there for you, if you don't.
