The Light And The Heart - Poem by Luc Lambert

For so long this crippled heart
Shriveled in and try to stop
for the scars were so deep
and some wounds were untreated
It didn't dare to look afar
always scare to be rip apart

They came on knocking
Sweet talking, sometimes yelling
even crying but this heart
would not or could not be part

But one day a light came
through the crack of this
badly shattered heart
With a soft touch
It made it feel the warm
breeze of love.
The heart shriveled even more
for every pain started this way
But the light was gentle and tender
and was true to this lonely heart

'Come.... I will not hurt you'
said the light with a sweet caress.
The heart listened...and slowly
opened the door where all its love
had been forever choked

The light came in and with
a loving touch,
painted joy and happiness
even in the deepest parts
Of this long forgotten home
Who now looked young and new.

The tears and the pains were shed
to make peace with the memories
'How can i repay you? ' said
the heart. 'You've been so nice
to me and never once asked
nothing of me! '

And the light said:
'Let your light shine for other to see.
Let your love go out and be.'
'What if i get hurt again'
the heart replied.
'Love sometimes comes with pain.
Just as the day turns into night,
The songs of love will laugh and cry
but for you my dear sweet heart
my love has come to take you
and we shall never be apart.'

The legend says there is a heart who
dances and sings with a lovely light.
And i've been told that this light was

I love you
