He conquered my heart,
He iced my bruises,
He embraced my doubts,
He loves me.

Still I cry
I’m afraid,
It seems so familiar
So peculiar and very different
That is for sure.

I think I like him
I don’t want to believe
I love him so.

His kindness leaves me surprised,
His love freezes my time.
Oh… his touch awakens hidden desires.

Still I’m afraid,
I know the story too well
But, I don’t know him that well.
Honestly I still want to go on.

To feel his love,
To comfort in his embrace,
To smile at his gaze,
To go where our hearts lead us.

For only then will I know,
If we are meant to be.
See, love is a gamble
You win some you lose some.
