Below is the poem of the day entitled If Hearts Could See which was written by poet John Gondolf.


If Hearts Could See

If hearts had eyes perhaps then yours might see the person standing right in front of you with open arms and love, that longs to be the one with whom a lifetime to pursue. if hearts had ears perhaps then yours might hear the tender whispers drifting through the air amongst the trees, that softly call you near and wrap around your soul with loving care. if hearts had hands perhaps then yours might feel emotions ever longing to caress your tender feelings with a love so real that only loving hearts can e’er express. And still I hold great hope that there’s a way your heart will someday see love’s sweet display.

Good morning, John. Our hearts can neither see nor hear, but they feel with a depth we cannot protect from unrequited love. Your lines are tenderly presented in a way that touches mine.
