Be Gentle to Your Heart, My Love

Be gentle to your heart, my Love;
be sweet, be slow, be kind,
for, in it, you possess the might
to save or lose your mind.

Do not forsake your heart, my Love--
unwanted feelings may
fade with time, as days go on--
but heartlessness will stay.

I pray you know your heart, my Love.
A beauty, Love, I see.
So hasten not to rue it. No,
be gentle, and be free.

The End
