The melody of my heart


If I would try to put words to paper
and try to describe love I would fell short.
If I would ask a million musicians to write a melody
even they would not be able to get it right,
as love is something difficult to describe.

Even if I could pluck all of the stars from heaven
and string them up as pearls
to give them as a gift of love,
I would have given nothing.

If I could empty the sea
and make it a paradise for you,
even that action would not describe
the depths of love.

You have woven my thoughts
like a spider web
and even every moment
that I make is felt by you.

You have become my universe
and I wear your love like a turban
around my heart.

You have brought my childhood longings
back into my thoughts
and a longing to belong to somebody.

It is difficult to express how much
I do love you
but love itself becomes the melody
that sets words to paper.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
