Dear Heart

Dear heart,
I know how fragile and light you are
You know my thoughts,
And wishes spent on falling stars

You've been my friend
Through thick and thin
I've come to realize,
You'll never bend

Dear heart,oh heart
What should I do?
I met a boy
Whose heart beats true

Oh heart,oh heart,
Dear heart of mine
He makes me laugh,
a smile so fine

Be still my heart
Be bold and true
Can this boy
Heal and renew?

Dear heart,oh heart
What to say?
He came right in
And blew me away

Dear heart,oh heart
How sad,yet true
The boy I love
Has gone askew

Dear heart,poor heart
Why couldn't I see
How foolish and blind
I can be

Dear heart,oh heart
Help me;new!
I see it now
I only love you
