A Heart Left Closed - Poem by Christine Ann Young

I never thought I'd feel this way again
At first you were a game to me - a whim
And I was lonely -
So tired of spending time along
And pretending to be happy all the time

I was careful
Afraid of what might happen to me if I let go
Opening my heart to someone new
Never presented itself as a thing to do
And I was certain - so certain
That a heart left closed could feel no pain.

Then, beyond the sadness and the rain
I sensed your love coming my way
It brushed away the silent tears
Left by a love of many years.

You put the song back in my heart
I never thought the days would start
When I'd be caring once again
A heart left closed can never mend.

Dedicated to Ray - 1983
