My Heart Has A Place I Hold Very Dear

Updated on August 23, 2009
 

My Heart Has A Place I Hold Very Dear

Wrapped With Ribbons of Lavender and Gold

I hold it very close to me

If the truth must be told.

 

It holds the place for the man I'll love;

A man of special gifts;

The gifts of truth,

loyalty and no uncertain crypts.

He'll honor me as I will him

On a pedestal of stone.

He'll like me for what I am

He'll love me even when I'm old.

In my eyes he'll see my dreams

He'll hold me like a treasure.

With un-yielding faith

Never letting go, we'll unite as

one beautiful feather.

My man and I will welcome change

Yet still the basics will stay the same.

He and I will weather storms

Yet steadfast in our dynamic goals

Our bond will be our fame;

our later crowns will be adorned.

In health we'll strive to do our best

In sickness we'll care and wait.

When his days are bleak

His path gets muddy and brown

I'll be there with prayers and pastel cheers

In turn he'll never let me down.

My heart has a place I hold very dear

Wrapped with ribbons of Lavender and Gold

I hold it very close to me

If the truth must be told.

      Dear Readers~

      Wow everyone! Thank you so much!

      To think I thought for the longest time no one was commenting on my writings? Yet here I am finally catching up on all your wonderful comments! The reason being I have not answered your comments recently and in a timely fashion is that I had no idea they were there, because maybe my notifications were set wrong? I do not really know? Yet I am hoping I fixed the problem by playing with the notification buttons. We shall see. But the main thing is that I can tell you how each one of your comments delight my heart and I truly appreciate them all. Have an awesome day everyone!

      Dear Lisa,

      You certainly speak with your heart, and I believe this is the deep wish of every woman to be loved by a man who will not use the relationship as a game,as a sense of conquest, as a come-on to say and/or behave inappropritely with no concern for her love and her feelings. I believe that this is the deep wish of every loving man as well. May you find the love of your dreams with the blessing of God. Jim
