If I had one more heart
I would readily give it to you
And to you and perhaps to you too!
But you see, the one I had
Is already taken.
Yet everyday, I keep falling in love
For my senses are so easily quite enraptured
I fall in love with your sunrise
I fall in love with my dusk
I fall in love with traditional cooking
When the heady aromas envelop
As well as I romance baking
For it brings a smile on my kids’ faces
And my home smells heavenly.
I fall in love with the angelic tangle of arms and legs now asleep
Whose sibling rivalry and revelry fill my home
I fall in love with your words, your turn of phrase
What you say and what you leave unsaid
I fall in love with the verses that reach out to me,
The stories that only your mind can create
Your unique experience that you kindly share
I fall in love with the pictures of blooms and pets you send
I fall in love with the magic of movies
And their world of wondrous make- believe
I fall in love with many a books
Their life like characters and their authors
And the belief and conviction that they portray.
I fall in love with the music I listen to,
The singer, the writer and the musician
I fall in love with the raindrops falling
The overcast skies and the crescent moon
I fall in love hopelessly and completely everyday
And as my whimsical heart waxes and wanes in love
The one who captured my heart many moons ago
Sits in a corner looking indulgently
At the shenanigans of my wayward heart
He draws me close and holds my hand and says
” Your heart is not my captive, let it love and love freely
As long as I have a place in your heart
Accommodate as many loves as you can”
Thus, in freeing my heart, he captures it again.
