My Heart Beat For You
written by: Alfred Orero
You warmed my heart
That desert where nothing grew
You lit my eyes
Those lights where darkness lived.
You broke my heart
That oasis that grew lush for you
You crushed my hopes
Those dreams that existed for you
You created a hero
A superhuman who knows her worth
You left a gap
A thirst for all which is good.
A thirst for true love.
