Hastens My Heart

Love…
…brings comfort that soothes; consolation that calms; reassurance that cheers; and encouragement that heartens. It is the oldest remedy known to human-kind and relieves pain and anguish today just as well as it did hundreds, even thousands of years ago.

American romantic writer, Robert Sexton
ancient-romeLong after
moments
of closeness
have passed,
A part of you
remains with me
And warms the places
your hands have touched
And hastens my heart
for your return.
