My Heart Longs For You


I see life's beauty all around me,
No clouds in my sky of blue;
A gentle breeze carries the song of a bird,
But my heart is longing for you

I gaze at the rivers and the valleys,
I walk through forests wet with dew;
I try to become one with nature and peace,
But my heart is longing for you

I watch children laughing and playing,
In their world, worries are few;
I want to escape to happier times.....
But my heart is longing for you

I prayed to the Lord for comfort,
He showed me the gate to pass through,
I wanted to go, but I couldn't leave,
My heart is just longing for you

Then the Lord said 'Let me show you, '
And Heaven came into full view;
My eyes filled with tears, again I refused,
It wouldn't be Heaven without you

And the wait for your love will continue,
My frailty makes it hard to pursue;
But this is a burden I must carry,
For my heart is just longing for you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
