I gave you my heart, it sat 
perfectly in the cup of your 
hands, so I gave you my 
heart to hold, to carry over a 
river of broken dreams, over  
the shards of a life past , to an 
intensity of true love desired, 
but you became weak, unable 
to hold my heart forever, you
reached out to take another, 
mine discarded, drifting ,ragged  
and torn, a faded heartbeat, 
dead echoes of emptiness, so
in this time of need, I ponder, 
to trust another , vulnerable I 
look to you, I share these
words that belong to my heart, 
and in this intimate moment, I 
give my heart to you, to carry 
over a river of broken dreams, 
over the shards of a life past, 
to an intensity of true love 
desired, but I fear it to fall 
again, so handle this heart with 
care, it sits perfectly in 
the cup of your hands,

    Much sadness and loneliness in your tender hearts words Paul my friend. When ones heart has been hurt and betrayed many times it's hard to not be afraid to entrust it to another I'm afraid. I wish you much love and happiness to touch and cradle your tender heart always.
