It’s just for a day… #poem #photography #valentine

the heart
were it  for a day
should I gently
place 
such a precious thing
recipient of my dreams
in your hands?
*
were it for a day
would I with but single thought
lay
an offering
treat you like a king
at attention would I stand?
*
were it for a day
present for you
a feast
decant my finest wine
give all that is mine
pretend that you are grand?
*
were it for one day
with this
rusty key
I’d offer you  my love
poured out from my heart
devotion to one man
The Key took its own direction and as I was meandering toward romantic it was turning another way but I guess in the end we came to an agreement – of sorts.
A most Happy Valentine’s Day. My valentine is far from the moon; the key will have to keep me company.
The Midweek Motif (at Poet’s United)  not surprisingly is Heart.
Who would hold the key to yours????

Piece of my heart

Look in my eyes

Right from the start

one thing that is left

a piece of my heart

*

Little remains

All torn apart

Given it all

you see?

That’s my heart

*

what should I do

make a new start

What will you do?

Break up my heart

*

Maybe too late

To worry or dart

You already have

The key to my heart
