My Promise to You

From the moment you walked through that door
My eyes stared and my jaw hit the floor
My heart started beating out of my chest
And the shake in my body would not rest

We shared times where our clothes hit the floor
And then a choice I made closed that door
But I could never get you out of my head
"Don't give up on him," is what my heart said

Now a chance again to get to know you
Who you are and why you do what you do
But you show resistant and caution towards me
For fear of getting hurt I can see

I know you're afraid and you guard your heart
But life's about risks and love's the best part
I will care for you and make you smile
I will stand by you through every trial

You can trust and take a chance on me
It might take time but eventually you'll see
We met for a reason and it wasn't to part
Please trust my promise that I'll never break your heart
