The Key To Your Heart

Who stands at your heart's door and knocks?
Knuckles raw serenades you,
Promising the sun, moon all the stars.
Your name a sweet song
On my lips that quiver
With a love induced drunkenness.
A current runs down my spine,
I want a part of you
I have spanned a lifetime
Searching to find in an emotional quagmire
You will not trust a stranger with your jewel
Tell the mouse
The key to your heart
Hangs with the bell round the cat's neck.
