 Affairs Of The Heart
Caught between dreams and reality
patience becomes tested

and how I wish it were not so

Facing what seems forever daunts the best
of me this day and we hold to all we hold dear

I no longer chase rainbows but this one holds
more than a pot of Gold at it's end

An end that starts with new beginnings and
plans unlike before knock upon my hearts door

Breathe deep today for it is all I can do
and all I need do, till time and my Father
says it is so

Wishing His time were mine will not be and
so we begin again to hold to these affairs
of the heart

Hold close I shall for warmth is found there
and not here where reality bites unforgivably

Whisper I do to what pounds beneath my chest
for there is where much pain and suffering
is withstood and relief is sought

Yes love has come again to a soul dormant
of this need for far too long

My appetite has been awakened and has become
insatiable for love has left a morsel of what
will be but not for now

For now we wait for blessings to be showered
upon deprivation and anxious becomes us this day


Mirrored before me, it becomes evident that
it rains today upon my heart
