    How fair is it to me
    To love you openly

    When there’s no guarantee
    That you’ll be forever at my side
    Forever holding me

    Now that I see
    How I need to be
    I pledge
    And I promise
    To make you
    A priority

    Baby please
    Walk through those doors
    Come on home
    Back to me

    NO GUARANTEE.......

    NOTHING IS PROMISED. LOVE IS A GAMBLE AND A B*TCH SOMETIMES AIN'T IT? BEAUJTIFULLY EXPRESSED.

    So true, so painful , but so true!

    Loved this one...especially seeing as how love snuck out the door when I was not looking ..."I'm in recovery now!" I should write about the 12 step program for broken hearts.

    Blessings On Ya House!

    "How fair is it to me

    What a question! Wonderfully stated! I really enjoyed your piece. I am wondering if the questino u posed, was to the object of your love or to yourself? Again, wonderful piece.

    ...although there's never a guarantee that
    the person we love will always be by our
    sides... you can rest assured that real true
    love is indeed eternal. so... to me...
    it would be worth it to take the chance &
    love openly. :)
    i loved this flow!! thank you for sharing.

    alwayspeace,
    elayne.

    Breathless - It was to myself becuase I realized I loved him more than he loved me and I was making a mess of myself. Glad I realized it and pulled back. Writing pieces like this helped alot.

    Thanks for your post herlove. I think simplicity is my middle name amongst so much talent on these boards.

    elayne - I now love openly with the RIGHT person. Thanks for reading me.
