From my mind

My Heart

MY HEART


I am what I am and I do what I say.
I face up to life in my own special way.
In my heart I am loving.
In my heart I am kind.
People like me for what I am
We're very hard to find.

In my heart I am loyal.
In my heart I am strong.
In my heart I know what is right.
In my heart I know what is wrong.

In my heart I am funny.
In my heart I am sad.
In my heart I know goodness.
In my heart I know bad.

In my heart I've known sadness.
In my heart I've shed tears.
Through parts of my life, over the years.
In my heart I have known happiness.
In my heart I've known joy
That outweighs the other thoughts
That try to destroy.

And when this heart stops beating
and I am in my grave.
Will they remember exactly what I gave.
My heart.

Derrick David Henderson
