My Heart

by swmedjr

My heart sings, it hums,
It radiates light and warmth.
Slowly, the ice melts, the snow retreats,
The birds chirp, as to echo the harmonies of nature,
And my soul is restored.

My heart swells, it expands,
It grows strong to hold sorrow and joy.
The ice shatters onto the snow.
The heart stretches, yearning to be heard.
I exist, I’m here, and I can handle it.

My heart takes root, it’s steady,
It stabilizes in the soil of my soil.
A forest overtakes the frost,
Growing strong, flexible and tall.
Ready to take emotion and hold it safely.
