When The Heart Chooses


love defies all logic 

all boundaries land and sea 

it permeates through solid rock 

through doors without a key 


unafraid of any borders 

undeterred by darkest night 

it doesn’t need two wings to fly 

or eyes to give it sight 


love settles where the heart says 

it’s carried on each breath 

it burns as if by magic 

it can’t be killed by death 


in truth it’s unrestricted 

not caged within a home 

it can float into the heavens 

it can comfort when alone 


its fervour undisputed 

true love remains unshaken 

its diamond strength enduring 

its presence unmistaken
