This Heart I Gave

this heart has given itself to you

it will never beg for you not to hurt it

because it knows hurting is part of it all

it asks for nothing else, only your love in return

if by chance, this you cannot give

please do not lie or make it hope that you will

gently say to it to turn away and that you cannot give what it desires to hold

do not pretend or prolong its agony, just let it know

the truth may hurt but better still,

than a lie well woven only to cause severe pain

this heart chose to beat for you,

don’t be so quick or too slow to break it

just let it understand so if there will be hurting,

it would not hurt as much
