My heart

My heart is not a poem, you may come And sit awhile apart from the drowsy day And measure in silence the sweet sum Of all I am to him in him when I pray My heart is not a poem, do not read My lips for syllables sly in sentences That ever mask our inherent need It's too naked for pride and pretences. My heart is not a poem, I'm a man Simple in form and capable only of love When you come, bring not a plan But come to give freedom to this dove.
