In My Heart
This has been a year full of trials and tests
My wife and I have worn them like vests,
I examine my motives and they are pure
So as I write the following, please be sure.
That in my heart, there is still a happy song
In my heart, there are lyrics; so sing along,
In my heart, is hidden another Hershey bar
A third row of seats, so take a ride in the car.
In my heart, there is a season of great healing
Souls are saved; altruism is what we are feeling,
There is genuinely peace on Earth, no more war
Jesus with us and to the saints, He has restored.
In my heart, I visit you to see if you desire a verse
In my poetic compositions, there is ever a thirst,
In my heart, the children play safely with their toys
Smiles erupt among adults who hear their noise.
In my heart, there is a season of jubilant celebration
All are eager to share; there is a living participation,
There are Sherpa being shaved with sharpened shears
To make the kerchiefs that will wipe away the tears.
I meet Dr. King, who has revisited his speech, At last
We look to the future, no longer a slave of the past,
I hope to see you there as you play your unique part
Who wrote it, this poet and the beating of this heart.
In my heart…
