Buried in this heart of coal

Updated on September 8, 2015

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.
