Poem 50


I reached into your heart today

I was curious as to what lay there

was there a beat

was there life

what lies within

where life is nurtured

and now there sings a delight

only a few are gifted to hear.

For in your heart I found not just a beat

but love and all that goes with that

compassion and forgiveness

strength and fortitude

marvellous qualities

many seek but few attain.

and though I know you do get down

that at times you feel yourself

dragged to the ground

from those you cannot control

who walk on you

push and pull

and expect you to take their pain

and soak it up.

its hard when that reservoir

is already to overflow

to make more space where

pain and sorrow

acceptance and love all have to co-exist

but you do,

for your heart not beats

it loves

loves without condition

forever open.
