Among your small possessions
In a place all by itself
There's a gift I one time gave you
One heart upon your shelf

This gift takes little space up
And it's never in the way
I'd guess you never notice it
As you go about your day

You never have to move it
It goes every where you are
Just hovers in the background
But always not too far

So if you need some comfort
When things are not quite right
Take out the heart I gave you
It'll get you through the night

No matter where life's road leads
If fortune's promise proves untrue
One thing you'll take beyond this life's

The heart I gave to you.

William G. Carrington 7/26/1996 - From the book One Heart Beyond Tomorrow
