The Key - Poem by James Casey

I had closed the door upon my heart
and wouldn't let anyone in

I had trusted and loved only to be hurt
but that would never, ever happen again

I locked the door and tossed the key
as hard and as far as I could
My heart was closed for good

Then you came into my life and
made me change my mind
Just when I thought that tiny key
was impossible to find

That is when you held out your hand
and proved me wrong
Inside your palm was the Key to My Heart
For you had it all along
