The Heart

Lock it up,
Keep it close
Bar the door
But keep the window open.

Let it live
It needs air
It is easily broken
But protect it from harm

It’s a gentle thing
Yet it can be cold
It’s a giving thing
But it can be the cruelest of all.

It keeps a goal
It takes it’s time
It keeps a beat
But it’s quick to fall.

It moves life
Through our veins
It’s a part of us
But it has a mind of its own.

A hopeless romantic,
A match-maker,
A bubbly little thing
But it gives itself away without thinking twice.

It is the heart
Our hearts
My heart
But it’s really all the same.

Our hearts bind us
And bleeds and beats
And cries and laughs
But they can also be so indifferent.

It will drive you mad
To try and figure it out
It gives life a purpose
But you can’t predict its actions.

It’s more than just an organ
A pump of the body
It can make you insane
But its joys are incomparable.

So keep your heart close
Protect is from itself
But once it decides to fall
You’re going down with it.

Let's be friends
