~ Thinking about an old friend ~

(A twist on something an old friend wrote years ago…he’s been on my mind lately, and although I’m sure he’s forgotten me many times over by now, I still think about him and hope he’s found his smile.)

And if, by chance, a heart learns,
That it’s a heart that yearns in error,
Should the heart then burn the bearer?

If it’s a heart then,
And it still beats then,
Whether it’s beaten up, or beaten down,
If it doesn’t quit beating,
What gives it then the sight to make it right
If it’s apart?

Perhaps the sight for a heart’s light has to come out from within – to see…to still be…that heart.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.

    It’s something how those old friends of ours that have wandered out of our lives in some way, still remain close to our hearts. This poem reminds me of a friend I had long ago that I has since moved away but she still has a very special place in my heart. Excellent work!
