What would you do if you had me

If I give you my heart What would you do Will you rip it to pieces Or wil you cherish it If I give you my brain what would you do Will you steal my intelligence Or will you expand my knowledge If I give you my soul What would you do Will you crush my spirit Or will you make my soul soar If I give you my body What would you do Will you bruise me badly Or will you protect me from harm If I give you all of myself What would you do Will you destroy me Or will you love me
