Guard your heart as if it were gold
Guard it from thieves, so it won't be stolen or sold,
Protect it surely as you would protect your love
Keep it safe and protected and always there of.
Guard your heart from liars, thiefs and cheats
Let them not trick it and use it for their own deceits,
Don't let it be used or abused for a liar to take
If that happens, the heart will then mournfully break.
The heart is loving and forgiving and kind
It brings forth warmth, tenderness to the soul and mind,
And when the brain thinks of deceit and unjust
The heart though feels both compassion and trust.
One day the heart might be unplugged
When the wrong person is adored, trusted and hugged.
Guard your heart wisely for both better and worse
Guard your heart, as you would guard your wallet or purse.
