Oh Heart Of Mine.....


Oh heart of mine don`t tarry long
Amongst the woeful earthly throng
Oh let me bide in worlds above
To feel that great celestial love

Oh heart of mine don`t linger here
To dwell in sadness, pain and fear
Relinquish yet the dark unknown
Think not to ever be alone

Oh heart of mine beat silently
That none may know, nor hear, nor see
How moves the sorrow hidden deep
To take my soul, to take my sleep

Oh heart of mine be still today
Let not your dreams be blown away
Do not be broken and forlorn
Tomorrow brings another dawn

Upon the wings of hope to fly
Above the clouds, beyond the sky,
To touch a land of peace divine
My spirit with the stars align

    I had to read it one more time Val. This time with the words of your message ringing in my ears, and it brought home the truth of this beautiful poem. The thing we wish for our loved ones more than any other thing is heaven. I understand. God bless. (Report) Reply

    Always nice to hear such soft metered rhyme
    and then I go off and crash and clang.
    Beautiful words to match the tempo and
    aura of this poem. (Report) Reply

    Wow, thank you for this lovely poem! I was caught by your 4th stanza: Oh heart of mine, be still today... what a subtle and elegant way to describe - this is literary genius! I think you speak for all of us, the hope and faith for what lies beyond. Truly a powerful poem! (Report) Reply
