Whispers of the Heart

Listen to the whispers of your heart

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”
 -Rumi

 

Sometimes I hear my heart whispering,

Sometimes I understand what it says,

Other times I only wish I could.

How can you understand words

That are in no language?

I do not know,

It is an ancient mystery.

But once in a while

There comes a moment

When everything is strangely clear

When all is quiet and peaceful within,

Then you can truly listen

And  hear the words

And know the answers

Without your ears,

Then you can walk your path

And spread your wings

And see the light

Without your eyes.

Even though a tree

has no eyes nor ears,

Its greatest power

is how it feels.

When roots go deeper,

The branches go higher

And both are needed to live.

When all is distant

And all seems lost,

Your heart beats faster

To make you see that

It never left your chest

And you will realise,

You still have everything.

 

I have only my heart from which to give

But to me it is everything.

I am grateful for my life!
