    My Heart

    Be careful of my heart.
    It has been hurt before.
    Poorly used and thrown out,
    kicked from door to door.
    It doesn't come equipped
    with a kit to make repairs.
    It cannot iron on a patch.
    It does not have a spare.

    Be careful of my heart.
    It only knows to love.
    If you treat it with respect,
    you'll get what you dream of.
    My heart will open wide,
    taking all that you will give.
    It will hold a place for you
    as long as you shall live.

    So if this heart of mine
    is something you'll hold true,
    I'll hand it over happily.
    I'll give my heart to you.

    Very beautifully written. I enjoyed this wonderful poem. Most men would love to have something like this written for them. ( I know I would. ) Great job, TS

    What a lovely poem, and a beautiful way to ask the universe to give you what your heart desires, someone to care for that heart and treat it the way a beatufiul poet like yourself should be treated. Best wishes in your search for that lucky man. Best way to find that lucky guy is to imagine and prepare your life as if he were already there. It's a "SECRET", but its true.

    What glistening idealism, and what pure hope expressed! I loved the poem, and wish for you a worthy caretaker of your open heart.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
