A Poet's Heart - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

A poet's wandering heart is precious
Only to a few eager souls, who hear
Their heart's songs echoed in his words.
That's why to them, the poet is so dear.

A poet's heart cannot be possessed
By a single soul mate entwined or not,
For a poet's heart is free to wander,
From heaven to earth without a thought.

Poets enjoy a unique friendship
And fraternity at home and abroad,
Their words can cheer wistful minds
And bind by friendship's invisible cord.

    Such truth in your words. Poets have hearts that soar above the ordinary and remind others of their ability to do the same. (Report) Reply

    Truely and wisely penned down.
    But i wonder could this rational tone bring a reader nearer to your poet's heart?
    I liked the wisdom, thanks for sharing.

    Subconscious thoughts....a poet's heart speaks! You can hear their heart songs through words, you can see them without physically seeing them. A poet's heart is the true person inside! (Report) Reply
