That Perfect Someone

Driving a nail into a wall
Try hitting the nail on the head
It would be painful to you
If you hit your thumb instead.

Never say I love you to someone
Unless you know for sure you do
Because the hurt you would cause
One day might come back at you.

A broken heart causes much pain
To the one you have made believe
You love them when you don't
Doing this would be terribly wrong.

When you meet that perfect someone
There will be no doubt in your mind
So until that moment in your life comes
Don't say,'I love you,' until that time.
