Journal Within This Heart and Soul
Journal of Love
Journal within this heart and soul of mine,
Let not the words in secret kept, escape
Thy pages written for me as a cape
To wear with love and proudly for all time.
For eternity the love in each line
Expresses my own highest truths which shape
My life with ecstasy, ever to drape
My heart in a loving cloak so divine.
I have vowed to ever hold close my dreams,
Dreams which have given me strength and courage,
To live each day with love in heart and soul,
And fear not thoughts of what tomorrow brings,
For each tomorrow is hope to flourish
The love within my heart that makes life flow.
Sweetly keep, dear heart, this journal within,
Among the treasures of the life I live,
For there will come the day when I can give
The words I keep hidden to one deep in
My heart, the veil between us so thin,
It will some day vanish, when I relive
Those beautiful dreams that always forgive
Life’s struggles and the mistakes made again.
Is ever love, strongly known, forbidden,
When within the heart one knows it is true?
Is it something to make one so fear it?
Oft times one keeps their emotions hidden,
Even when the loved one already knew,
For love will be made known in the spirit.
