Something From The Heart

( A poem written for and inspired by a love that's lost)

-----------------------------------------

It's hard for you to be with me.
If you'd agree, just let it be.
We'll follow each, our destiny.
The world is young, as you can see.

If you and I were meant to be,
The vastness of the land and sea,
The distance or melancholy,
Is not a hindrance, you'll soon see.

It's hard for me, I understand;
And hope is like a grain of sand.
When life is cruel and all seems hell,
I'd think of you and all is well.

So give me something from the heart.
A simple thing you can impart…
An ancient coin, an aged stamp,
Or book-dried rose once red and plump.

The pain inside may feel so huge,
And tears may be my last refuge.
What is done, can't be undone.
A loved one lost.. the one he won.

Although I urged you to be glad,
It seems absurd, but I'd be sad.
The loneliness within my heart,
Would manifest when we're apart.

So give me something from the heart.
A simple thing you can impart…
A lovely poem to tease those tears;
In the sunset of my lonesome years.

For even though this heart's been taken,
And doomed me half a dozen children;
A love that may, in time forgotten,
Would still live through and never ashen..

So give me something from the heart.
A simple thing you can impart…
A gift I'd cherish when by and by
We may not say our "Hi's" and "Bye's".

And someday with my whitened hair,
As I sit upon a rocking chair…
I'd read your poem and think of you,
Then wonder what became of you.
