A Heart’s Note.

A heart sings, with every beat;
The beats of life. A heart
Grows no happiness
Without sadness, sometimes,
Yet it smiles from end to end.
A heart tears,
Every once in a while,
With every beat; the beats
Of days before, of nostalgia,
Saudade; o’, the love that remains!
It knows no death, it has been said—
No truth so bold, nor tears untold.

A heart burdens; a heart holds on.
A heart feels and it remembers.

    1. I am happy the piece spoke to you ☺. We are indeed one with our hearts and what it feels, we are. Sad and happy are as one; interconnected.
