So young, dumb, and innocent were we,
One way love from a gift from above
To an empty pit of sin.
You had no idea what you were in,
Nevertheless, you gave me your heart.
In my dirty hands I held it,
So soft, so pure, and so clean it rested.
My dirt, infectious as it is, never fully corrupted
The precious gift you entrusted, to a heart so vile and corrupted.
I took your heart and stabbed it,
I trampled it and tried to destroy it.
But no, you are not that easily broken.
A gift from above, you were built to withstand it
You’ve been through worse, you had to be tested.
A teacher to us all, I took for granted
The way you gave me your heart,
You took it back, and I understand it.
You are still here after all I have done,
One more chance I have always been granted,
A gift from above to all you encounter,
This time I know,
I won’t take it for granted.
