Come Close. - Poem by Ann Beard
Come close. I will show you my heart.
do not fret if you feel me shiver.
of all that is human the most fragile part.
it will ripple and gush like a river.
It will beat to the rhythm of steady flight
the darkness feeds well on anxiety
Causing breath to battle a grip so tight
bringing doubt to a moment, s impiety
You can touch, feel how soft and warm
caressed by the years of love it has known.
Unbeaten by every emotional storm,
or empty nest when a fledgling has flown.
Come close. I will show you my heart
it is worn and fragile bears many a scar.
Tears moisten protecting the finest part,
the core where all my best memories are.
