If Your Love Is Not Real

Red Roses for True Love
Red Roses for True Love

Don't tell me you love me,

If words are merely dripping from your lips,

Don't use words to sweeten me,

If words are all they are.


If you love me, you can show it

from deep within your heart.

By your actions and your eyes,

Truth and lies can be told apart.


Love me, if you love me,

Always from the heart.

Do not buy me jewels

That sparkle in the light,

Of course I love their beauty,

Glistening in the night.


But if they're "Guilty Gifts"

Remember who l am.

I'm not that sort of woman...

Your money cannot buy me

If your love is just a sham.!


Love me if you love me,

Only from the heart.

The kind of love that means,

That we will never part.
