You Taught Me All My Heart Could Feel



You showed me how my heart could heal

You taught me risk and dare

You taught me glee and flair

You taught me silent prayer

You showed me how my heart could peal

You taught me poise and air

You taught me free and rare

You taught me when to pair

You showed me what my heart could feel

You taught me right and fair

You taught me love and care

You taught me what to share
