The Growing Heart

She took me to places
I hadn’t before been.
Showed me a new heart
that I had never

The heart beat slow
So used to its
rhythm and rhyme.

Suspended, there it
hung, doing nothing
but beat out its

Slowly buds appeared
then blossomed into view
watered by her love
and tears and, just
like a rose,
it grew.

She spoke softly to
it often.
Told it many wonderous
things, and as the new
heart listened it responded
to her in kind, by giving
out a fragrance, I myself
could never find.

She told the heart she’d
waited a lifetime
holding onto a dream
that she would find her
soulmate, the one whose
always been there,
but was ’til now

The heart opened up
fully and let her love
flow in.
Accepted and responded
unconditionally forgiving
her past sins.

It heard the words
‘I love you’
Spoken many, many times
and, I know the heart so
well by now


The heart that grew

Was Mine.

  1. This is, to use an overworked word, Awesome! Your images are so clear, I actually saw the flower grow and bloom. This is a magical love poem. Thanks.


  2. Lovely creation and the heart does fill with pride and happiness when it hears the magical words!!

  3. this reminded me somehow of the old smokie song “can’t fight this feeling” with one of my fav lines…cause you take me to the places that alone i’d never find”…beautiful words of a growing love…

  4. Words, so beautiful … they will fall in many a heart … including mine … and grow. Thanks for sharing your gift, my friend. Love, cat.

  5. If I am reading this correctly, you are speaking of coming to accept and love yourself and that is a beautiful thing – more so than any flower in the world. This poem gave me chills at the end. very good!

  6. As your heart beats in rhythm and rhyme, so does this piece letting your heart grow and climb.

    So if I always speak in rhyme, does that mean mine will explode?
