What is the risk of having a caring heart
If we reach out to care for someone
We never expect that it will feel wrong
Even if we think we are the only one.
At times we give of our self too freely
Someone takes advantage of our gift
Maybe we don’t even see it coming
We are left with so many doubts to sift.
There are those that return our care
Such feelings are precious to find
To share a smile and your thoughts
Knowing they are returned in kind.
There are times when we might be hurt
But it just isn’t in us to hide our love
For there will come a time for each of us
And our heart matches another like a glove.
