I Ask My Heart

I ask my heart –
“what do you feel?”

My heart replies –
“I feel great sadness
that I asked to be 
taken seriously so often
yet you were always too busy
in your head – 
What do YOU feel?”

I then say to my heart –
“I don’t know how to feel 
as I have spent so much of my life
not listening to you when you tried
so very hard to teach me.” 

“It’s never too late” says my heart
“but listen now, I beg you –
for I weep on your behalf,
whether you feel it or not.” 

“I know.” says I, “I know.”
