 Reflections of My Heart

It's The Little Things  ღ KKD ღ

It's The Little Things

How does one touch
that deeply protected heart
The one that all but shuts
before it really starts

The one that only gives a glimpse
of the beauty with in
The one that beckons me to knock
but wont let me in

This heart of mine
does not ask for much
Just to know I'm special
with a loving touch

You wont let me in
Yet you wont tell me go
You show me love and care
Yet you wont say it is so

You leave me upon a shelf
that is no stranger to me
Where I have spent a life time
wishing to be set free.

What is it that I'm missing
what is it I leave undone
why is it that my heart
always holds the song unsung

I know you are out there
alone can not be my fate
How long must it be
that I sit alone and wait

Why is this task made so hard
when its really quite simple
It's the little things in life
that makes this heart giggle

To borrow a phrase from Kenny
Buy me a rose
Call me from work
Open a door for me
What would it hurt
Show me you love me
By the look in your eyes
These are the little things
I need most in my life
