The Heart’s Lullaby is a candid portrayal of love in all its splendor and pain. ♥
Love, in its purest form, is tranquil and soothes the soul. But love, as is life, can sometimes be cruel and unjust with its paths of uncertainty and forced goodbyes.
In essence, it is a journey of self-discovery. A continuous journey of becoming. Often, it becomes a delicate dance of holding on and letting go.
We linger in memories of ill-fated love; our minds can easily soil them, and our hearts can effortlessly polish them to perfection, altering their resemblance entirely. We can anchor ourselves to yesterday by zealous choice or solemn grief. So easily, we can become obsessed with what “might have been” and miss the beauty that lies before us. Our minds craft spectacular moments that will never be realized. Why? Is it self-indulgence, or are they necessary companions for our soul’s survival?
Love, its force so formidable, transcends time, distance, and even death. Eternal love is the epitome of its grandeur.
To feel the exquisite, majestic splendor of love is the greatest gift we can give or receive. To have another see the unique beauty in our imperfections, that will protect us and elevate us without greed or envy, a soul willing and proud to walk this journey of life with us and share in its joys and sorrows … this is love, a gift unmeasurable and unmatched by earthly possessions.
But two souls must be willing. Therein lies the intricate complexities of the heart.
And in the end, we must never forget … love, as is life, is a continuous journey of becoming.
Thank you! ♥
To my family and dearest friends, thank you for your love, support, and encouragement as I delve deeper in my quest to translate the intricate beauty that lies within our hearts.
To my readers, thank you for your kindness and continued support. Without you, my words would merely exist, forever adrift in search of home.
Together, let’s celebrate this majestic, mystifying journey of becoming.
“A beautiful, meaningful, and poignant poems written by this most talented poet. I loved all of them, but my favorites were “Our Story,” “Echo of Love,'” and “Eternity.” Poems that speak to us who have unconditional love, or who have lost a love, and to those who serve in the military. Thank you, Natalie for sharing your gift of words.”
