A part of my heart

I never found out how to undo a love,

Once it’s yours its forever, it’s indelible stuff,

It dwells in the heart and may never vacate,

It’s bags can’t be packed, doesn’t have a suitcase.


I tried and I failed to undo a love,

I worked day and night but it just wouldn’t budge.

In the end I gave up and accepted the truth,

It’s part of my heart, here to stay, win or lose.


A knot that was tied and cannot be undone,

A thread made of gold from which memories are spun,

A promise to cherish, two hearts intertwined,

The thread tangled up, but the knot has survived.


I don’t try any more to undo a love,

Instead I look back to how lucky I was,

And I keep to myself, when I’m called to reflect,

That if love is forever, so too is regret.
