My Poem For You - Poem by DonnaDeLong Matthews

My words may not reach
or caress your heart,
but they come from deep within
for it is only there I make my start

They may not be worldly
or appear profound,
but more heartfelt
will never utter a sound.

It took years and years
to dig that deep,
many a night
upon my pillow I did weep.

But the unknown became familiar
as all fell into place.
Life is much easier now
for my heart is a known space.

When self-love is absent
to others it can not be shown.
I could not give away
what to me was unknown.

In my heart's search
who I am was achieved.
I found that I'm not all bad
as I have long believed.

So this heart of mine
is open and new.
Is your heart ready
for this poem to you?

    Very nice Donna. Are you THE Donna...The lead guitar playing Donna? I hope so. I am a big fan and think that you were the heart of Elastica. Hope all is good.
