This morning I was talking with your little sister, and I had to tell her, don't hold your heart back for fear of having it broken. If you draw back from love out of fear, you engender fear in the one you love, and you end up bringing what you fear upon you. You've just got to put your heart out there, and even if it does get broken a time or two, it's worth it for having allowed yourself to experience and express those tender feelings for another person.
For me, I would pay all the sorrow I've experienced just for the joy of having loved you. It is your sorrow, and your fear, that is too costly.
I love you, baby.
