A Caring Heart

A caring heart will never stray
even when its owner has to go away.
It will think of its happy home
dismissing thoughts of wanting to roam.
No pastures are ever greener
than the ones in your backyard.
A home is the hearth of the family
and love will always keep it warm.
A caring heart will always
consider this as it goes on its way.
When temptation is near
a caring heart will steer clear
and use the loving star
to guide it safely back home.

How beautifully you have combined the sadness (of the son lost to the mother) and the peacefulness (the wold does not interfer down here.) Perfection came in a small poem thanks to you. And you are so right, because once death touches us, our lives no longer feel the pain of this world. Beautifully done, Michael...beautifully! !
Heartbreaking and potent, Mikey. I fancy this may have been triggered by those crashes/accidents that we've been hearing about on the news today (helicopter crash in the Irish Sea, or something, amongst others) . Elegantly and movingly captured. Best wishes, Gina.
