Your Heart



There is a string from you to me

It’s thin & thick, long & strong

It’s as colorful as a carousel

& as invisible as a fairy

It sparkles in your eyes

I fly to you & rest on the tip of one strand of hair

You ask sometimes how will I know that you’re there?

My answer is always my hand to your heart

When you smile I know you know but

you’re still afraid

Truth is I am too

But the carousel spins

And sometimes it feels fast when you can’t see the faces

Sometimes slow & it makes me want to cry either way

I love you like a sunny day in Paris

I love you like a walk through the oldest church I’ve ever seen

I love you like I always will

With a bold

a fierce

a timeless

a dreaming

a true

a warm

& expansive heart.
