Hearts Take Time

Hearts take time -

to find someone to love.

Hearts take time,

to mend when they break.

Hearts are special and fragile.

They need tender loving care,

whenever the sky shines,

with the moon and the stars.

Hearts have been known to beat faster,

some hearts are true and some fickle.

When it comes to friendships,

hearts will reach out to others,

if they are sincere.

Hearts that love,

are very lucky hearts

and those who find pure love,

are the happiest of all.

Special hearts beat as one,

while out dancing cheek to cheek.

With joyful rhythm,

hearts dance to a rock and roll beat.

Hearts are often filled with love,

when special songs,

bring golden memories.

Always remember to keep hold,

of your heart unless you know,

that your love is true.

Never lose your heart,

along the way,

even though it might go astray,

you know that someday,

your heart will find its way home.

Hearts can sing,

they can fly,

as long as happiness gives them wings.

You can tell a lot from a person,

by knowing the kind of heart they have.

White hearts always speak the truth,

with bright shining eyes

that reflect the very soul.

Black hearts always tell lies,

the never have time to hear,

what you have to say,

as dark thoughts

and evil around flies.

Hearts take time,

to find their desire,

a passion with an inner fire.

Hearts can lead you to your dreams,

so be careful when it comes to your heart,

always be true to it

and know your heart’s most deepest longing.

Your heart will lead you to the one you love

and it will be extra special if you’re loved in return.

Never let your heart run wild too long,

for like with most anything,

wild hearts can run out of time,

so seek a heart,

that will beat in rhythm with your own

and you’ll have found a home.

Hearts filled with love, special songs, memories.... inner fire, desire and dreams. That sums me up. Still looking for a home, though. Nice music. Soft and charming.
