Echoes Of The Heart

Echoes Of The Heart

Those warm feelings that flow in my soul,
Reverberate throughout my body as a whole.

A small knot swells up inside my throat,
As I swallow hard that I don't choke.

I feel tremors from my head to my toes,
Feeling them bounce all around like echoes.

The excitement swells up from deep down inside.
When I hear your voice I get so tongue tied.

I often think of many different things,
What holds us together is not just strings.

In this world there's tons of things built,
You have patched me together like an old quilt.

When you are away I feel distant and alone,
When I see you, my heart rings like a phone.

This joy that I can only feel from you,
Holds my soul together like the strongest glue.

I miss you so much when we're so far apart.
Shudders run through me with Echoes of The Heart.

-For Gail's Echoes Of The Heart Contest
