Bernard Shaw

In My Heart. - Poem by Bernard Shaw

In my heart I have a picture of you,
the picture is old but you are as new.
For years I have carried it around with me,
Jealously hiding it so that no one should see.
The picture changes depending on my mood,
if I am hungry for love, you are my food.
When I am feeling sad you are my prop,
helping me back on the way to the top.
Happy and cheerful I face each day,
your smiling face guides me on my way.
Yours is a picture that never dims with age,
with you free in my heart not in a cage.
You are with me both day and night,
filling my years with strange delight.
I have seen many pictures in my long life,
but none so beautiful as you my dear wife.
Yes in my heart I have a picture of you,
the picture is old but you are as new.
