A Poem Inside My Heart


Inside my heart tucked neatly
Under all the things I've been through
Amid the woes, beneath the smiles
And joyful times I've clung to
Are special little pockets
Lined with golden strands of hope
And softened seams of inner strength
Allowing me to cope

If only I'd remember to tap
Into deeper sides
Of calmer ways, of peace-filled breaths
Of soothing, lasting tides
I'd get a fix or remedy
For all this world bestows
I'd find my way and live my life
With far more highs than lows

I'm thankful for my heart and mind
Their warmth and wisdom too
Because I've learned that anytime
Endurance sees me through
Life isn't all that difficult
When Faith and Hope, my friends
Caress and hold me patiently
Until the madness ends

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
