This Story was written in response to Laura M Bailey’s Manic Monday’s 3-way challenge.
You may also wish to read my previous entry for the 3-way challenge:
The Word: Heart
When my life was in a shambles
and I was totally in a mess
You’d put your arm around me
and take away my distress,
You’d dried each jewel-like tear
with a tender, loving kiss
but greatest of all, my dear,
it’s your laughter that I miss.
You gave your heart to me,
so peaceful, calm, at rest,
But how I wish that it could be,
still beating hard within your chest.
Now you’ve gone, and I’m alone.
You promised we’d never part.
But your love for me has shown,
I will always have your heart.
