The Courage to Love by Debbie Lacy

Updated on March 17, 2012

It takes courage to love again when you’ve been severely hurt

It takes all of the faith and strength you need to reassert,

It takes trust and it takes desire

For the love you must have and acquire,

It takes that wonderful man to show her

That it takes love and only love can restore,

Once you’ve trusted the passion that you’ve always dreamed of

Embrace it because now you have the courage to love.
