Keep Your Heart


Tears that pain
Are not those from the eyes
But those from the heart

Pain that kills
Are not those inflicted on the skin
But on the heart

Regrets that last
Are not those without remedies
But those we knew we could have prevented

Hate that kills
Is one bore from love
For someone we valued

Of the utmost, keep your heart
They direct your part
Know the lover that beholds your heart
For it is the mystery that keeps you alive.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
