Friday Poetry


If you would have my heart, listen to me,

Even when I say the obvious

Or repeat the mundane

Just be open to hear me,

I love it when I have your full attention. 

If you would have my heart, talk to me,

About your day, your hopes, your frustrations,

I wont care if the tale is of glorious exploits or inane mishaps

It is the real you that I will study.

I love it when you trust me to know you.

If you would have my heart, sing to me

The lilt of your voice strikes a chord

That makes the woman in me answer

It is not the song or the tune, but the passion in the music

I love it when your melodies are my lullabies.

If you would have my heart, be kind to me

I am fragile, a rare gem with corners sometimes brittle

A lovely descendent of Adams rib,

Bone is easily bruised and broken,

I love it when you cradle me softly.

If you would have my heart, pray for me,

I need to know that you are acquainted

with the “GREAT I AM”,

That you care enough to let HIM know I need protection/direction/ redemption

It is the spiritual that provides eternity

I love knowing that forever is all the time you need.

If you would, you will,

 I promise.
