Heaven In My Heart



Heaven In My Heart

 

I gaze into the abyss of my heart

And there I see a warm glow never to depart

A light of love brighter than the sun

Between a Mother and her long lost Son

Emotions we share between Earth and Heaven

On Mother’s Day, December third and eleven

And she's with me today

Smiling for me on my birthday

She’s there in the very core of me

Every day and every night, so affectionately

She holds me in her loving embrace

And in my mirror I see her lovely face

Our eyes of blue have shared many silent tears

That look of love, so long ago, so many years

With more love than I’ve ever known

I pray for a miracle as I stare at my phone

To hear her sweet voice in my ear

Tell her that I feel her love coming through loud and clear

She’s with me when I’m driving in my car

No matter where I go, near or far

From within comes a bright light of love

For Heaven is everywhere, not just above

All my life she’s loved me, right from the start

For as long as I live, I’ll have Heaven in my heart

        A fine write and tribute AP. But doh, in UK, your birthday was 12th November as it took the USA date format as 12/11/year. That's: Day of month/month/year in UK date format.
        Oh, what am I wittering on about?! lol.

          Yes orchi, and we're also 6 hours behind you. 4 PM here, and 10 PM for you Brits. So toss something way up in the air and 6 hours later I'll catch it. ; )

        • orchidee

          You is not so far along that long and winding road of life. Why, you is fairly young still! heehee.

          • Accidental Poet

            Yes orchi, I'm just a babe in the playground of life next to you. I've been meaning to ask you orchi, did you help that Neanderthal man find his way? We haven't seen him around.

            A beautiful poem, AP!! I can relate to this poem too! I never thought of it as having heaven in your heart, thanks for sharing this beautiful piece!

            • Accidental Poet

              Thanks for reading Christina. Yes, that's something I learned when I found my birth mother's grave. I knew that she knew I was there.

              A beautiful tribute to your mom, AP! And you are so right, they will always be heaven in our heart.

            • drabbler

              This is a gorgeous and very openly emotional poem. I love the idea of having heaven in your heart- it's a beautiful idea that had never been apparent to me.
              Keep writing ~ F

              • Accidental Poet

                Thank you F. When I found my birth mother's grave, I suddenly knew that she knew I was there. And from then on, I've always felt Heaven in my heart.
