Key to My Heart--By Allan Ball--England

Key to My Heart 

Life is never easy 
Living with a broken heart

Will you ever realise
I loved you from the start

Alas you never noticed me
A lonely figure in full sight

Flickering eternally
A distant candlelight

Still, I wait and wonder
What the future has in store

You see I really love you 
And need you even more 

Allan Ball has retired from a career in the Banking and Financial sector. Writing is both peaceful and rewarding, the written word allows our hearts to speak. His poems have been published in anthologies.

  6. Thanks, Allan, the sentiment is all too real, and the cajoling rhythm is a comfort, this is worth a second read
