Lullaby of My Heart

Lullaby of My Heart

A Poem by Yani De Los Reyes

If the heart can't speak, then music shall speak for me. :)

After falling under a deep and horrid spell,
I started to walk without myself knowing
Little teardrops of falling on my cheeks
Why am I still crying even when I'm smiling?

The stars of everlasting wishes
Show their dance of happiness
I watched them sway and twirl
Then I closed my eyes in silence

"Hush now little one
Don't cry, don't die
Sleep in my arms
and hold on to your dreams"

A voice calling out to me from afar
As if it smiles as it sings, and the winds echo
Joy and sorrow, I close everything on to me
The light that I yearned comes back

"Don't die now little one,
Let yourself fall 
And I promise I will catch you
Let me share my peace with you"

Gentle sound from above
Is it you, my love?
Is it you, my angel?
Ah, my heart rests in peace

"May your wishes come true
and may your happiness spread
I love you my dear
Let me be your calming voice"

Please, love, let me listen
Let me hear your angelic voice
Let me hear your harmonic melody
And let me be your instrument of love

"This melody is only for you
Listen to the notes I composed
Keep your ears and soul alive
Let me be your Lullaby"

What a beautiful write! This poem had such an elegant, captivating, calm feel to it, and I loved how it flowed so effortlessly. Your choice of words were so enchanting, and really brought the poem to life. I especially loved the stanza which began with the line 'The stars of everlasting wishes'. I also really liked the last stanza, and the whole idea of the 'Lullaby' of your heart. I thought it was a unique, creative, and simple yet effective idea, which you executed really well. :)
Great work,
