My Heart Beat For You

written by: Alfred Orero



You warmed my heart
My heart,
That desert where nothing grew
You lit my eyes
My eyes,
Those lights where darkness lived.

You broke my heart
My heart,
That oasis that grew lush for you
You crushed my hopes
My hopes,
Those dreams that existed for you

You created a hero
A hero,
A superhuman who knows her worth
You left a gap
A gap,
A thirst for all which is good.
A thirst for true love.
