Heartstrings of Our Being

Written by: Eugene Harvey

deathless is the wrong road
longing broken hearts travel
a mosaic of silly love songs
lonely memoriam on display

tearful memories ere praised
needful trivial feelings deep
of joyful treasured moments
abandoned dreams assuaged

profound thoughtful promises
of lingering breathless ecstasy
oneness once inspired desire
in hopes ever long forgotten

time’s rarest of gifts opened
fondly remembered no more
true love’s mystery unsolved
labyrinth of the heart inborn

our human spirit’s lifelong 
innermost desire to perform
an orchestral masterpiece on
the heartstrings of our being
