Heart Swing

One’s daily life routine challenges the heart on a random basis and sometimes for too long a time.  And at those times, the stretch may become overwhelming,  leading to confusion and self-reflection.  And although self-criticism and judgment may seem to prevail, in the short term, the good heart will always right itself given the proper time and its recognition of all the strong love that surrounds it.

We may, at times, say we don’t care what anybody else thinks of us, but our heart ‘swings’ and cares for the love that comes its way and appreciates its little ‘notices’ from loving friends and loved ones who always stand by.

Heart Swing

My heart, still puzzled, mends its beat
and searches wildly, tho’ in retreat
from gone by days whose arrows stung
in broken songs that loved ones, sung.

The days of passion for worldly things
not the song the heart now sings;
extending outward through gentle air
for hearts of love with which to share.

Problems solved; heartaches healed.
Souls reworked; now resealed.
Goals have changed the heart’s pursuit;
the vector angle, now acute.

The days now shine… but danger be
lurking always by decree
and thus the heart must be alert
in hopes those loved….stay unhurt.

Walk each day a different path.
With heart bespeak a warming wrath.
And bring a smile to those you meet
down endless miles of your retreat.

Could You Be True?

The power of new love is mesmerizing as it aims its arrows at the heart.  The tentative heart, not wanting to believe its good fortune, thumps out its doubts to bolster its hopes.  Is this feeling really true? it queries itself.

Could You Be True?

Could you be true or are you only a dream?
I’d sometimes like to know.
I might as well ask is the grass really green
or is white the color of snow?

Are you really as pure as the wind that blows
and as strong as the mountains are high?
Or are these questions to ask, but never to know
whose answers are lost in the sky?

Do you live in the past as you live each day
or do you wonder what the future may hold?
Will you remember April when she dies for May
or even May come winter’s snow?

Can you pretend your life is happy when your heart is really sad
and convince the ones around you that you’re true?
Can you smile when you’re unhappy and when things are going bad
turn the gray sky overhead to shiny blue?

Can you take the joys of happiness and the painful days of blue
and join them as one, forevermore?
Then your grass will be more greener and your sky forever blue
and the light of life will shine upon your door.
