The Heart

The heart has reasons
which reason does not know
as in the way I look at you
and why I have that glow ~

nor does it explain away
the tingle that I feel
or why my inner thoughts of you
are often so surreal ~

neither does it take account
of every breath I take
so that I might see you tomorrow
when from love’s dream I wake.

The heart oh it has reasons
which reason does not know
and I thank God that reason
may come…and go.

That struck a chord somewhere deep down, Karilea...

Muchly enjoyed...

Regards, sudhir

P.S. I am hassled too much by work, else a poetic reply was in store...  

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

hi Sunshine
Heart doesnt understand or reasons. Tere were times when mind did reason but you still cant be sure whether to go with it or not.  I feel the same way but I dont know whether to rip it furtyher or stick on. Strange situation.

Sincerely

very beautiful, the heart is a life we can hardly yet begin to understand. The heart is what makes us who we are. Don't you agree? In our minds we may say one thing, but our hearts determine the outcome. Enjoyed your poem very much. As you can tell I love , what's the word oh yes ( love) take care Rosebud
