We talk about the key,
that opens my heart
A place so shut off,
and closed from the start

No thief could break in,
no locksmith could pick
No one could open it,
with just any old trick

That key has been lost,
for oh so long
The door unbreakable,
and so very strong

But somehow you managed,
you searched and you found
That key to my heart
and entered without a sound

I don't know how long,
you were actually there
But when I found out,
it filled me with fear

How did you get into,
a door with a lock
Never saying a word,
or bothering to knock

And where has that key been,
for all these years
Then all of a sudden,
it mysteriously appears

After all this time,
I figured it out
And now I know what,
this key is about

So if the day comes,
that you must part,
you will take with you,
the key to my heart

Because that key,
has always been you,
something so precious,
so loving and new.

So for all that you are,
I thank God above,
for all that you've given,
your kindness and love.

This starts off good but fizzled out for me. It's way too wordy and not focused enough for my tastes. But that's just one person's opinion

The Key
Nice job on this. Love has a way of sneaking in, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing.

Sneaking In...
And never leaving...

Even when the Lover leaves...

That is the emptiness you must live with...

Very Good write...
Thank You for sharing your emotion...
