Matters Of The Heart - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

The thought of you smiling graciously
Makes my heart beat for you endlessly

So I indulge you to take part
About the theme of the heart
For I am no expert
Of matters of the heart

I say ‘what’s the big deal’
When you love someone to reveal
On the nose how you feel

Some say ‘It’s a big deal’
When you love someone to conceal
Precisely how you feel

So many broken hearts
Too many, too few sweethearts
So is the gap between my age and yours
The perfect love cure or must we endure
Encountering further obstacles in the future

Right now I know my heart
Is yours even when we are apart
Clench onto our life’s flowchart
For who is to tell who will first depart!
With love that’s the risk we take from the start

So I indulge you to take part
About the theme of the heart
For I am no expert
Of matters of the heart

What about trust, respect and compatibility
What about chemistry and reality

Is the heart sufficient?
Or must the head follow
In making all the right decisions for tomorrow

Should I follow my heart or should I follow my head?
