My little heart

Love at times seems 
Such a petty little thing. 
It’s like a pill. 
It lends you 
A temporary completing thrill. 

But for the first time 
In years where 
I’ve been shrouded by my fears. 
I seem to seize 
A man that brings me no hateful tears. 

I had forgotten 
How it felt 
To be treated like a princess. 
To be loved for and cared. 
To be humored and spared. 

You lift the world 
Off my shoulders. 
And pull me away from this uncertain mess.
Though far away you may be. 
Your closer you seem to be 

At times you frustrate and very well confuse me.
No love seems ever to appear. 
Then just as I lift 
The flag to surrender 
You draw me closer you draw me near. 

Surprise me. Confuse me 
And to puddles I will melt. 
A simple word. A loving way. 
In a message you send 
Smashing through me like a wave. No sound, only intent

Blown away, yet steady and still. 
I stand undoubting and without a chill.
For somehow, I know,
That the one who protects 
My heart is. Most definitely will stay.

Such pain have I felt. 
So harsh and refrained
They can never be divulged 
Because they will 
Make you so frail.

 It evaporates.
Your voice lovingly takes it away. 
Reassurance you deliver.
 Strong faith you conceive. 

Undiminished is your love.
 So protective of me.
 You glance not as if 
I am carved of raw stone. 
But delicate as gem sent down from thee. 

You guard me and guide me.
 And love so eagerly.
 "My little heart" you say,
"I love you beyond my wildest dreams
 And find it so very hard 
To believe you will be mine for all eternity".

 Such love so suddenly 
I can feel once again.
 Knowing now 
That all pain and suffering
 Were merely a wicked test.
As trials and tribulations 
Walk our steady path 
I’m sure we'll face it 
Not with fear 
But with love in our hearts. 

For when I am weak 
My ship you will 
So gently lead.
Still comforting and preparing me
For the cruel winds we may breed. 

So brave, so strong 
Yet so innocent you seem to me.
But protecting my heart 
Is a man with fears.
Fears just like me.

 I'll protect you my dear.
 Just as you have protected me
 I’ll love you and put your fears to ease
 And promise to love thee 
Till I can no longer breathe.
