Believe in the heart that loves you

Believe in the heart that loves you

And you will not go far wrong: for such

A heart cannot lie nor can it deceive

Hearts such as these are born true

And remain true for all time


Sometimes, even the best hearts 

Suffer injury through no fault

Of their own. They may be severely

Treated, their reliability taken for

Granted and their loving ways abused


Hearts of this calibre throb to many

Rhythms. They smile when they might

Otherwise cry, they forgive when

Lesser hearts might walk away. In bad

Times they patiently wait for better times

And God willing, when the good times

Finally do come they rejoice in the reward

Of their faithfulness


Believe in the heart that loves you

And you will be amply rewarded. Your

Bed will always be warm and your lips

Never far from the heat of a love that

Will not cool with time. As for the secret?

Well, if there is one it is surely this:

Believe in the heart that loves you and

It will doubly believe in you

For Kate my friend and my muse
