Fifty Four . . .

You are my Heart
by Stormcat

You are the most important person ever to enter my life.
Any thought of you simply fills me with joy.
I fall asleep thinking your name,
wake to your realization, exist for your happiness.

You are time to my clock, the wind to my sail
the shout to my triumph, fear to my pale
the pond to my lily, night to my moon

brook to my babble, the sky to my blue
the sea to my wave crash, cane to my sweet
soul to my music, and the heart to my beat

  1. This is Pure Beauty. Thank you. I have a couple of tears myself.
    Where will you be reading this poem tonight? Let us know over at Poets United--at least the general area of the country.

  4. This is beautiful. The heart lifts with every line, especially when you start listing delights, like "the pond to my lily"....and "night to my moon". It begins to babble happily like the brook in the last stanza......I totally loved this.
