Tread softly once inside my heart,
for the ones that came before;
left scars and empty places
before they slammed the door.
They thought they had me beaten,
leaving me here with only my tears;
but through the pain I grew stronger,
with every passing year.
Now my heart is ready
to try love from someone new;
To find a perfect love to keep,
hopefully with you.
So tread softly oh my darling,
as you become a part of me
we will keep each other safe and warm
for all eternity
