Heart of Stone
By Melinda LaFever
Heart of stone, heart of stone
Once I had a heart of stone.
No one could touch, no one could move me,
I had a heart of stone.
Once I was more than just a statue.
I laughed, I loved, and truly lived,
But feelings come with such great danger,
Pain and hurt and fears they give.
The gift of tears that comes with feelings
Was a thing I would not keep.
So my heart began to harden
All because I would not weep.
But when I built a wall ‘gainst sorrow,
Keeping tears and pain at bay,
All the joy I felt at living
Slowly began to fade away.
For when your heart becomes a statue,
Callused, hardened, like a stone,
Where all pain has been evicted
Joy and Love may find no home.
But then you touched my self-made island,
Full of unfelt pain, despair,
Shattered all my guarded armour,
Laid my heart open and bare
Brought me smiles and brought me laughter
All the joy I thought I’d lost
Brought back tears, and now the question –
Will I choose to pay the cost?
