Life Through My Heart
Author: Terrie*


i apologize,
i know i share more than i should,

i know no stranger in my life
i love people
i always need someone in my life

i am an open book to all i meet
i hide nothin'
yet i know nothin'

and yet i know deep inside i hide from my own-self
what hurts me the most
yet i have an appetite to grow and learn

God is my source,
my inspiration and my hope
sometimes i write in rhyme
sometimes i stay within my mind

over all i am a quiet
hard to imagine that
i love to laugh from deep within
until it hurts to laugh anymore

i love life ,i love, love ,i love deep,
i'm sincere as one cares and wants to be
yes that is me..
what more cain i say that i haven't said

i have a child like heart
i am about honesty
i don't like pain, i don't like tears

so please accept my sincere apology
didn't mean to come on too strong
or scare ya away
in all honesty i needed a friend

i try to keep the nightmares of the past
where they belong yet at times
i keep them in my life
to keep it balanced
to remind me that i was someone's wife

my job consists of helpin'
the ones whom need me the most
sometimes i want to give it up
sometimes i want to stay so close
not a place i wanted to be
but a place where God needs me

at times i feel good just sharin' my day
after a long day at work
i try my best
to take nothin' home

most of the times
when i am alone ..
i break down and feel myself fall
as i start to remember holdin' a hand
of a life fadin' away

you'll know
my heart is dyin'
if you ever catch me cryin'
i promise, i will get through

there you have it..
i am strong but yet sooo very weak...

Poetry has been my cure all
my quick fix ,my band aid
my passionate escape
my vision in someone else's eyes

the friend i cain hold
when i am all alone
my poetry has felt and seen
life through my heart
as i share of myself

------- Author's Notes -------

we build a trust,in what we share.

What a sincere outpouring of your own thoughts Terrie. You will never come on too strong by expressing the truth. Your kind heart shines through in this piece my friend.

There is so much on my mind to say and yet i can say nothing. I realize this is a poem about yourself and yet i feel as though you have painted with words, my very soul. This, is without any doubt the most touching poem i have ever read. I hold you now as my favorite poet, above all other, even Robert Frost, this is amazing. I do not know what else to say, you have brought tears to my eyes. Well Done Terrie, may you're words continue to bless others as they have blessed me.

Hey Lady T! If only more people were as sincere and giving as you. As John and Ing Twi already said, this was both touching and moving. It's like a tear drop turned into poetry. Beautiful!
