The Golden Key

Updated on October 24, 2012

Give me the golden key to your heart

So that I can see the inner glow of your soul

From there I know radiates

Your love for me


Give me the golden key to your heart

As long as it keep glowing

While we’re apart

I’ll know that your heart is still beating


Give me the golden key to your heart

Let me inside to the very core of you

My love for you

Like a fast river flows


Give me the golden key to your heart

I knew we’d never part

Right from the very start

Now I want to get to know the rest of you


Give me the golden key to your heart

Tell me that we’ll love till the end of time

Till the world stops turning

And the fires burning


Give me the golden key to your heart

Let me deep inside

To the very being of you

Where I can find comfort and warmth


Give me the golden key to your heart

And someday down the road

When we’re old and gray

I’ll return it and say thank you


For giving me the golden key to your heart

When it really mattered

And our love was full of passion

The days full of love and kisses


I’ll return it because I know

That no matter how I wish it could be so

We won’t be standing before Heaven’s portals together

And you’ll need the golden key to your heart


But I know that someday

We’ll be together in the eternal sky

And then we’ll know why

Our love always burned so bright


Give me the golden key to your heart....

      beautiful, yet sad, Rasma..

      loving someone so deeply is always risking so much...

      the risk is in losing them - one way or another..

      there is no golden key...no guarantee...

      i - like you - believe it is well worth the risk - one way or another..

      have a lovely sunday...

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 4 years ago from southern USA

      Hi Gypsy,

      I missd this one somehow, as I did not see an email on it, but I was commenting on another hub and saw your comment and I thought, I haven't seen anything from Gypsy lately, so I clicked on your name and here it is.

      Yes, that golden key to one's heart says it all. As Leslie (ImKarn) stated in her comment, "loving someone so deeply is always risking so much . . . the risk is in losing them - one way or another. . . there is no guarantee . . . but do believe it is well worth the risk . . ." Leslie is the best at commenting.

      Now, you know me, and how I interpret poems, as this golden key actually reminds me that the golden key is His living and active Word, which is the key to all life itself and that personal and very intimate relationship with our Lord God, and His unending love for us all for all of eternity. That agape love - divine love - no higher love than that, and it is only His love that will ever fill that empty hole inside each and every one of us, like no earthly man or woman can ever fill no matter what.

      However, we are here on the planet to love one another deeply until that time we go on to our eternal destination, our true home, where there will be no more tears, pain or heartbreak ---now that is true love!

      Voted Way Up. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Glad you enjoyed this Lord.

      Well I really enjoyed reading your comment Faith and I do believe you are right. However it is I guess that parting moment that actually scares some people. I go by my godfather who at 91 is still able to keep loving his dear wife who is 81. Now a couple like that truly has a divine kind of love. I also enjoy Leslie's comments. Glad you liked the song I remembered it when I was looking for a video to go along with this. Thanks for the vote and God bless.

      Thanks, Gypsy, since I have been married to my one and only love in this lifetime since the age of 19 to my high school sweetheart and still married to him for 34 years, what do I know? LOL I guess I will never know of the "parting" moment until one or the other of us go on to be with our sweet Lord.

      A very emotional read this moment in my life. I could not help my tears from falling. Yes, in one way or another we will be hurt, or hurt the one we love, even if that is the absolute last thing we ever want to do. But certain things here in life are not in our hands to decide. Thank you for a beautiful and very moving poem.

Me and my wife share such a love together and no matter what happens in our life we are deeply in love on the spiritual plane of things besides the physical, and this is what I sense your golden key here is getting at in terms of giving such a thing to your significant other.

And when you do finaly find it , the lock is rusty , broken or bent ! The hinges rusted and squeeking so loud that it hurts your ears . Or the door to his heart is so tight that it sticks and wont open anyway . Finally when it clicks open the door sticks , pulling , pushing and begging it open . ............inside its just a guy on the sofa , sleeping , snoring and taking up thhe good side , that used to be yours !....lol.....No sweety this is as Awesome as you are !+++++++....:-}

      So glad you enjoyed this Audrey. You know what I remembered when I wrote this poem. Many years have passed already and it was when Martin and I first met. We were swimming in the river and I found a golden key. Yes, I did. It was one of those old fashioned keys in gold that unlocked old doors or desks. I took it home and guess what? It actually could unlock my wall sections desk. I was amazed and delighted. Unfortunately the key as since broken. Must be a story there somewhere.

      Ardie nice to hear from you. So glad you enjoyed this. Sure hope you are doing OK in managing your job and those lovely daughters of yours. Wishing a golden key for you too.

      Good morning Rasma from lake erie time ontario canada at 7:11am on one of the coldest days and weeks we will have here in over 3 years.

      Probably a good idea to go back to bed with my hot water bottle (my girlfriend) and dream about warmer climates .......as I have my last coffee ......I must say that The Golden Key is still one of my all time favorites by you or anyone - stay warm yourself and be well ...

      Dear Gypsy Rose Lee,

      Fantastic phrasings. I love how you carved each stanza to fit the immediate tense and thought, yet kept your original thinking intact.

      Genius is what I really think about this work.

      I wish that you would consider writing a book or books of your poetry. If you have written some already, great. How can I get one?

      You have definitely touched my life.

      Love you.

      Thank you for your thoughts Kenneth. Yes, I have wanted to create an e-book of poems for a long time. However have not yet had the courage to do that because I would have to do it all by myself. I have had many suggestions and people who have published tell me it is easy to do and to format. I am going to start working on this project in September. Do you know which self-publishing site is the best and simplest? If there is such a combination. Blessings to you and hope you have a great weekend.

      Our mutual friend, Catgypsy, who has published blogs and considering e-books, said to tell you that choose the one that requires the most research. Beware of those "front" websites that are only feeding grounds for "pirate" writers, I call them thieves out and out, so follow your common sense.

      And keep me posted and if you like and it would help you, I can let you use a few of my hubs to give you some ideas.
