reasons

Walked myself down to the riverbank.
Found a place to watch the water-
to sit and think.
Wondering what it is about you
that has this hold on me.

Not so long ago, before you came around
singing your songs in my town.
I swore there would never be another
to make me feel this way.
Till now, I knew all the reasons
I closed my heart down.
I’m still not sure I’m up for another round.

Then one day, you placed your
forehead on mine
and oh, you laughed so sweet.
That’s the moment I lost it
and left my heart lying at your feet.
Hard to keep it safe from harm
when you rest it in another’s arms.

How many reasons do I need
that I should let my heart fall?
Is there even one good reason
I should ever be in love at all?
