Heart, Can You Answer?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you do when the world has turned away from you and
everybody are so cold to you?
What is it that keeps you all warm?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you survive when all seems lost and
never will return?
What is it that keeps you alive?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you forgive when the wounds
are not all the way healed?
What is it that makes you forget?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you love when all love bring is lose and grief
but rare its happiness?
What is it that you have down below?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you care when everything seems
so mean and dreadful?
What is it that you are always so aware?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you not cry when everything rips apart
and around you its all dark?
What is it that you're so calm?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you thank when a tragedy
hapens after a tragedy?
What is it that you're so thankful for no matter what?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you remember when its been long ago
that you've almost lost everything?
What is it that keeps all those memories inside?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you choose when out of a hundred you only need one,
when you stand on a 4-way stop and you choose your path?
What is it that helps you decide?

O Heart, O Heart
How do you answer when you are asked so many questions
and the answer is nowhere to be found?
What is it that talk without words?

A wonderful, meaningful poem. Well done!
This is a really great poem in the fact that YOU are talking to your own heart. I haven't seen anyone use that angle before. Very sweet piece. Sheila
How nice...it really seems like you were having a conversation with yourself and have penned down each thought that crossed your mind...
