In My Heart…

My eyes followed the setting sun
As it sank into the distant hills
It followed the raindrops in the air
Pitter-pattering on window sills

The cool breeze stroking my hair
Tears of joy in my eyes it fills
My ears sought the river’s voice
As it flowed past me in silent grace

When it hits the stones nearby
Its droplets hitting my smiling face
The twilight in the reddish sky
Like magic conjured in nature’s ways

The fragrance of the lush red roses
Filled my heart with love anew
Played with my deepest emotions
Gave my life a brand new view

The stars now appear above me
In the sky like drops of dew
Sweet honey my tongue sought
Its taste just blew me away

Took me back to that joyful place
Where my heart just begs me to stay
Where I can watch the sunset again
Where someday my children can play

My heart only sought hers
The smile on her face
The sound of her laughter
Her charm and her grace
My hands clasped in hers
Till the end of my days

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
