show me the world tonight
and I'll show you my heart
show me the things you hide
I'll show you where to start
for there are places in your heart
hidden by walls and dust
places you have long neglected
and they are stained with rust
they are memories of other loves
and ones who stole your dreams
ones you wanted to hide away
or try to remend the seems
but your heart has never healed
you never gave it time
just block it off is all you've done
and it was just a crime
I wish you could just wake up
and see the world before you
and look at me with flowers in my hand
and give me a kiss and thank you


 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

Some people wind up sleeping through life because of past hurts. They become frozen with fear of being hurt again. Very good poem, James!

Good plan, James... We need to learn from our experiences, but not hide behind them....

James, this is an excellent poem, such a shame that someone would let the dust, and rust get in the way of seeing a true gentleman standing before them.

I hope you give her this poem.
There is a lot of truth here.

Some people never realize what is in front of their very eyes all along.

Your poem is da bomb. I liked it.  Your poem describes what I have been doing for two years.

thanks guys.  I really appreciate the comments.  it's been a fast moving week and I leave on the 28th to head back to work so I'm sorry if I haven't commented to poems that I normally would have done so to, I just have felt so overloaded with words to write that I've been thinking about what to write out than reading other peoples poems.  it'll prolly be that way for a few more times that I'm back.  just a heads up now instead of getting one later.  hope you all had a merry christmas and have a happy new years.


 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

This is beautiful
