The dam has burst around my heart;
pain poured out, a brand new start.
A love so strong, it cracked the wall;
I cast out doubt and gave it all.
Just when love began to grow;
a wall came up and blocked the flow.
The fear is not mine.
I still believe;
my heart is open to receive.
His barrier is strong, it will not break;
for a while, my heart ached.
I found the strength deep within.
Love will find me once again.
No more dams, no more walls,
no more waiting for his calls.
