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 will remain so for all time.

 

It sometimes happens that even the

Kindest 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.
