I feel your heartbeat, I am who I am

I see you as no one else can

I feel your heartbeat, I am who I am

I listen to your words so strong so sweet

Just wishing for that day we meet.

Alas...Alas... it has all been so trying

I have sat for days and days crying

My dreams with you may never pan out

The days I pray and then I shout...

Though I am sure you are the One

What way do I turn? Or should I just run?

I feel your heartbeat, I am who I am

I listen to my friends as they share their love

I hear the Angels whisper from above

My heart aches, my dreams have faded

You are on my mind, yet becoming shaded

Life goes on until we die, no more worries

No more cares, no more lies so unfair

My heart holds on to you fast and true

There is no one else I LOVE YOU....

I feel your heartbeat, I am who I am.

Wow, this is a lovely and true poem.

My favorite line "Which way do I turn? Or should I just run?"

Those running shoes running in the back of my mind's eye.

Thanks, G-Ma! :)

Sadly, love does not come as an exclusive package. It comes with numerous heartstrings. Thanks for sharing. But despite the rather sad tone of this poem, I wish you nothing but overflowing love this Christmas! Lurve ya! :D

I am who I am is so symbolic with our inner feelings. It's our comfort knowing who we are. The good the bad and sometimes the ugly. Very poignant indeed and beautiful expression of self and wonderful piece of poetry:0)
