 Reflections of My Heart

Love's Ember

Love's Ember

 That touch of love's glow
That warms the very soul
To last a life time
Is one's life goal

Love is a lesson
We learn thru life
Will it deliver
Joy or strife

I believe once love is given
Its never truly undone
The heart's many chambers
Stores each love won

You store what was wonderful
And discard what went wrong
But always learning to carry
That once loving song

Continue to fill
Your heart with love
Learn from all lessons
That are sent from above

Some you win
Some? Well not
The pain is deep
The love not forgot

As long as you know
You give it your best
Then regardless of results
You won loves test

I'm now at a stage
Knowing no love of my own
But I visit my heart
To remember all the loves shown

You see… I'm not so old
That I can't remember
The forever warmth
Of loves burning ember

You don't unlove
Just let go of the hurt
and tuck the love away.

ღ God asked me
How long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
