    Lock Up Myheart

    If I would lock up my heart and never open it to anyone again then it is the end.  I have been hurt many times, and I still open my heart.

    Separate

    The man I have my babies for walked out the door one day and never returned. He now lives with his ex. I wish I neverd loved. I wish my heart was locked up. I hurt so bad cause he is never coming back.
