Maybe Then

I have thought that I could not live without love.
Now I find myself wondering if I can live with it.
Once or twice in my life, I have given myself up to love.
I have let someone else become everything in my life.
Too many times, I have been shattered.
If I could find a way to forget love, I would.
Maybe then, I would not be happy.
Maybe then, I would forever know lonliness.
Maybe then, my heart would grow cold.
But also then, I could not be hurt again.
