The Key

"Your smile illuminates my heart..."

The Key

The Key?

Your smile illuminates my heart,

melting the stone cocoon created from heartbreak.

Your laughter casts a light in a dark tunnel.

When I can’t see into the depths of my heart,

your voice guides me through chatter within my thoughts

and keeps me safe.

Your lips make me drop my guard,

for my heart has been locked

and I want to give you the key.

And if you want inside,

don’t hesitate to use it.

If not,

the door is always there.
