A Letter To My Heart

Dear heart, I was straying
Didn’t hear what you were saying
All these years that you have bled
While I was listening to my head
Well I know I have hurt you a lot
But you’re the only one I’ve got
So take my hand and walk with me
Away from here and we’ll be free
Leave a trail and the world behind
A different world then we will find
I’ve seen you hurt. I’ve seen you break
I’ve seen you pain. I’ve seen you ache
I’ve seen you harmed. I’ve seen you torn
Still you always kept beating on
All this while you’ve walked alone
Now we’ll chart a road of our own
So take my hand and walk with me
Away from here and we’ll be free
Leave a trail and the world behind
A different world then we will find
Take a moment and catch some sleep
Now is not the time to weep
Your tears aren’t lost on me
It is there for all to see
All the stars will light our way
And everything will be okay
So take my hand and walk with me
Away from here and we’ll be free
Leave a trail and the world behind
A different world then we will find

  2. I could feel that you meant every written word. It’s amazing! We humans always think that brains and that they know best but who has actually known the future? Since we cannot help but be optimistic we can give our hearts a chance because even hearts know what’s best for us.
    I look forward to connect with you more Frank. I believe that we have a similar train of thoughts and I could really use the company from different writers…

    Keep up the good work buddy!

  3. I am in love with this. This is exactly how my heart feels right now. I know my heart is the only one beating for me come what may, so I try my hardest to make it stay. This was beautiful. Thank you.

  4. I really needed to hear that this morning. Its making me cry, and that is good. A beautiful release. It is good to be reminded, to live myself. That it’s important to love ME. I’m scared today, for the first time. So thanks Frank. I needed reminding that it’s going to be okay. Xxxoo

  5. Thank you for putting yourself out there and sharing your gift with the world. I am so glad you are! And I am glad you are listening to your heart – this poem so beautifully illustrates the struggle we all go through of “not listening” to our heart, even when we really, desperately need to. Thank you for being you. ❀
