If you leave your heart open

If you leave your heart open

You’ll never know what you will find

Another open door to enter

An opportunity to leave another closed door behind

I know I am not perfect

But I always strive to be

Please forgive me when I trespass

I may not always see

The mistakes that I make

Are ones that I must own

Trust must be earned

In the deeds that I have shown

I sense a reservation

For those with a broken heart

Maybe an elusive past

Not ready for a new start

I respect those in solitude

I respect those who share

A life without another

I think is harder to bare
