Be Still My Heart



Be Still My Heart

I hold my breath
And stop my heart
At least its strongest beats
And strain with all I am, my love
To hear you come to me.

Fear not I’ve lost my senses
I know you breathe no more
But still, I feel, from time to time
You are not gone from me
In every shape or mood or form
I feel you at my core.

Opening my window just the slightest bit
Your very soul sighed inside
And settled in my arms
And here your self, your essence
Seems struggling to stay
To touch me, nay, to hold me close
To help me understand?

Oh my love, my love
You’re fading –I feel you leaving now
But there’s a sense of such despair...
Please, my heart, don’t go
Stay, stay on – I beg of you
I know not how to live
And now it seems
You’re caught somewhere
Not knowing how to die.

Oh, it aches
You ask too much
And I do not consent!
But I will stand aside
And trust,or allow at least as much
That you are doing what you must
But oh my heart,my dearest love,
If this is not yet done
Come here to me, as need you to
‘Til your poor soul’s at ease
And you can go alone
Alone, and you go
alone.

S.E.Ingraham
