You Touched my Heart Today

You touched my heart today...
I know it was hard to find
This tiny heart of mine
It was buried way down deep
Ordered not to make a peep
But your words just reached inside
And cuddled this heart of mine
They shooed my pain away
And brought in the light of day
Made it all seem quite alright
Your words just held me tight
For you touched my heart today…

You touched my heart today...
Your words were such a balm
After the vicious storm…a calm
You rewrote my forgotten song
And helped me to sing along
Your words wet my drying soul
Made me verdant again and whole
Each word had its rightful place
They soothed away my sad disgrace
For you touched my heart today...

Let me touch your heart today…
My words may not suffice
But I’m willing to pay the price
To bring you some little cheer
To my tiny heart you are dear
I want to bless you in some way
So I’ll mention you when I pray
I’ll ask Him to smile down on you
Grant you success in all you do
Give you the desires of your heart
Protect you from falling apart
Send angels to guard your door
Give you all that you need and more
Bring you each day safely home
Be with you wherever you roam
Envelope you in heaven’s peace
Make your worries and strife to cease
Be with you each and every day
Give you blessed words to say
May He answer my simple prayer
And lift from your heart every care
Be blessed and happy, this I say...
May my words touch your heart today.

    what an amazing poem, this is, a classic transported from the days of old, Keats and Shelly, even Byron would bow down to this gem....

    WOW, Harry! How very kind of you to think so. Your opinion means so much to me! :) I'm honored. This one came from the depths of my heart in appreciation for someone dropping me a note of kindness. It goes a long way, don't you think so Harry? :) God bless.
