Heart & Sound
Author: Pamela O'Brien


I can hear my heart tonight
Portrayed by a simple song

Using no words, but telling me
Things I have known all along

The notes are flowing through my veins
The beat going strong and steady

Combining all of my emotions
Without asking if I was ready

Can you hear my heart tonight?
It's seeping from a stereo

The echoes always come back to me
Because they have nowhere else to go

Again, very profound

Now this poem had all of it's depth in the emotions of a person. Like reading your own feelings, but in a different way. Great work!

I like you. Can you continue posting comments to this site please?!
I actually wrote this poem while I was listening to a musical piece from a film I once watched. And every time I listen to it, I write these really powerful poems. So I asked myself why, and I wrote this poem about that song-because my answer was that it is my heart in musical form.
I am so glad that somebody knows what this feels like!

I hear your heart and wonder...,

I hear your voice, so sweet and soft, playing with the memories, that soon will turn to dust.

Yet, in your heart I wonder..., If memories are, truly, not the best of us.

I hear your heart and love its sound, so soft and true, I wonder if, memories, are not the best of us.

Thanks Pam! Great work, I loved, loved, it!
