My Heart On My Sleeve
~Marge Tindal~

I wear my heart
on my sleeve.
It's there for all to see.
I share my heart
with all who say ...
let me join you, please.

Some people think
that to show it
you should not.
When you wear it on your sleeve
you get hurt a lot.

Nay, with them
I disagree...
it's been there,
it will remain there,
it's your entrance into me.

Some say there are those
who will try to hurt you
if you wear your heart on your sleeve.
But, I'd rather think that it's up to me ...
who stays and who must leave.

The friends who enter this heart of mine
will see in just a minute,
you must have love to stay ...
there's not room for conflict in it.

So when you look my way,
my heart on my sleeve you see ...
know that you may enter
the very heart of me.


*Inspired by Suthern

This poem is YOU!

This poem is beautiful,
and so full of love.
The day may be short or long,
but with the kindness
you exhibit freely
the world can carry on.

Afraid I can't believe you, Marge, unless you've got a sleeve the size of Texas, that is!

Denise-
Thank you ... it's easy to speak my
heart when I've got such great friends.

Balladeer-
Sweetheart, Texas ain't got nuthin'
on the size of this Florida heart.

(3 1/2 hours huh?  Tempting !)

Suthern-
Well, you 'mean ole biddy'
quit your blubbering !
You inspired it and that's that !
    

Martie-
Thank YOU .. for entering.

SEA-
Strength, huh?
Well, if that's true .....
I'M SUPERWOMAN !

Love and smiles to all
~*Marge*~
