This heart belongs to others

friend, lover, mother’s gift

given away freely, bit by bit by bit

ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥ ª♥

All a jumble, numbered by days

this mind is no one’s, not even mine

certainly doomed to be lost in time

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

But never to be stolen or sold

my soul is mine, mine alone

the greatest treasure I’ll ever own

Been on a search

throughout the season(s)

for hope, understanding

for the best reason

to cling to this tree

keep singing my song

defy sadness, disappointment

never resort to wrong

Always led back to one thing

though questioned when put to test

the most pressing thought

as sun rises east, sets west

is to give; give you this

as deep as the deepest tide

big enough for the world

there’s no time to bide

Please take this gift

pure, soft, warm, so true

then know you are loved

 my heart, I give to you 



                        (if you wish,

                          you could regift)








I could not hold it

in the palm of my small hand

Your whispering gift

found its own way to my soul

never to be forgotten

∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞

If I could gift you

with sweet peace, the world over

I would wrap it up

in God’s neverending love

sending it, on angels’ wings
