Buried in this heart of coal

Updated on September 8, 2015

Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology

Buried deep in this heart of coal,
is the one who holds the key to
my soul. ...

Dirty and black from a life filled with sorrow,
she’s brought meaning into my life, a new
reason for tomorrow.

When troubles creep in and become more than I can bear,
her soft, soothing voice lets me know that she’s there.

Break apart the dirt and dark sooty grime,
and you would find love that could last a
lifetime.

Hold my heart, and pull the stitches that are sewn,
and inside you will my love that’s formed a
precious stone.

It doesn’t matter where life takes me or forces me to go,
there is only one thing that I wanted you to know.

Buried deep in the heart of coal,
is the waiting for you to unlock my soul.
