Keeper Of My Heart

On a dark rainy day

as the sun hid in a cloud

you found me broken,in pain.

With one smile,one word

you chased the rain away.


You showed me how to smile

You taught me how to believe

for I have already forgotten

The miracle and joy of love.


Where does love go when is broken?

To the healing hands of time; you say.

Where scars become a badge of honor

and a true testament of faith in God's eyes.


As I opened my arms and heart

to let you into this life of mine

exposing what is left of me.

In the ruins of a soul taken apart.


Keep me close to your heart my love.

Keep me sacred,keep me safe.

I don't need nothing that gold can buy

just the certainty and holy peace

of knowing that you're the keeper of my heart.

      Hi Anan,

      "Keep me close to your heart my love.

      Keep me sacred,keep me safe.

      I don't need nothing that gold can buy

      just the certainty and holy peace

      of knowing that you're the keeper of my heart."

      This is a beautiful poem. I love the words on how scares become a badge of honor. Through pain we learn to know true love and beauty. Very nice.

      Thank you James-wolve;

      This has been the best compliment I have had, Pablo Neruda was my grandmother's favorite poet. I had forgot about his poetry. You made me blush with your words.Thank you!

      Wow This is very romantic ,touching and profound.Best part for me:

      exposing what is left of me.

      In the ruins of a soul taken apart.

      Keep me close to your heart my love.

      Keep me sacred,keep me safe.

      I don't need nothing that gold can buy

      just the certainty and holy peace

      of knowing that you're the keeper of my heart
