Tough Love

by

Paul Curtis

If you fall in love

And get your fingers burnt

If you give all of yourself

And end up broken hearted

Donít withdraw from life

Get back in the saddle

Dip your toe once more into the mire

Donít deny yourself the chance

To swim again in an ocean of desire

You must be immersed

In an ocean of emotional tempest

To feel alive, to be alive

You must take off your vest

Before May is out

Take a risk, take a gamble

If you donít buy a ticket

You can never win the jackpot

Itís better to open up to danger

Take the knocks and live
