Something Lingers in Your Heart

by Jul 12, 2010Poetry

Something lingers in your heart that you have failed to see:

A pale xanthic light on the horizon,
Perhaps it’s the sun,
A twilight light on the water perhaps it’s the moon,
A warm pleasant light that dwells in the corner of your heart,
Perhaps it’s hope,

Hope that has managed to kindle from the ashes of despair,
Hope that wants in there to linger and go nowhere,
Hope that catches on flame and sets light in the shadows,
Hope that you need and hope that wants to be found,

Don’t despair and embark yourself on a quest to find the hope
that is amid your heart and is well concealed,
If you shall find it, your worries and fears shall be healed,
Delve deep in the wondrous unexplored chasms of your heart
for your heart is not inane,
Thus, your search shall not be in vain,

Find it and let the valves of your heart embrace it and never let go,
For this hope shall avail you against despair and foe,
For hope is the light that twinkles in your heart, a light that won’t go out,
A light that will accompany you in every road and help you in a doubt,

A light on the horizon, a light on the waters,
It’s this light in your heart that really matters
