laid on the clifftop pondering
looking out over the sea
primrose and cornflower surround me
for as far as my eyes can see .
i've just spent my night dreaming
something i always do
but this time i feel myself drowning
its time to give my heart to you .
the heart in your hands will love you
to the end of eternity
its fragile and gentle and caring
and not given away easily .
you are responsible for its safety
what i give is no love token
it comes with all i believe in
and you must never allow it to be broken .
if dropped my heart will shatter
into so many tiny pieces
and the pain will stay with me forever
because forever love never ceases .
i'll look for a reason
why you let my heart go
and try to repair the pieces
as those with broken hearts will know .
if i was as other men
able to lie and cheat
the terrible pain i suffer
would not be felt in each heartbeat .
and when my heart is mended
and i am through the pain
if my life has'nt ended
i know i must try again .
forever love is beautiful
and for as long as you believe it to be true
i will wait forever
to share my life with you .
so i send my heart across the ocean
to my soulmate and best friend
please handle with care my love
the heart you helped to mend .
if sometime in the future
things don't work as we have planned
please remember what you are holding
within the palm of your hand .
i can never hate my love
its not the way i choose to live
if the unthinkable happens
forever love i will still give .
its true i'm fond of drama
and i'm passionate yes thats true
but all that i believe in
has just been given to you .
