Everywhere I Go

Everywhere I go,
I go with my whole heart.

It always lets me know
it’s right by my side.

Sometimes it screams
when I’ve burned it raw
And other times
it makes me fly.

But scream or soar,
I will never leave it behind.

I am so glad to know
I have one
and I am so glad to feel
it always here
right by my side
willing to go

Everywhere I go.

      You’re totally welcome, Mr. Rick. 🙂 Thanx for staying up last night with me and Suzanne and holding the space open for me to speak from the heart to both of you. It meant a lot.

    CJ, You have this amazing knack to capture the human spirit. I know so well that it comes from the heart. I am glad that write and record the poems. I go back and read these for my own heartbreaks to get re-inspired.
    Thank You!

      Thank you my sweet friend. 🙂 Always. Thank you. And you know I’m totally here for you, too.

    Thank you for sharing! Very good advice in there also. Thanks

    • cjromb says:

      Yep, there IS good advice in there, isn’t there. A few people have said “Make sure all this heart break doesn’t make you cold.” Oh, hell no. I will NOT shut my heart down because someone broke it. That would destroy me, and I will not be destroyed by someone else like that. I will just find another to love, and in the meantime, I will continue to love me and my friends (and my doggies). Love feels amazing; it’s worth the price when it hurts.

    You speak to my heart with everything you write. It’s like a book that I cannot put down, you know, even if you need to be somewhere else, still reading, CJ, your mind and your heart that you share with all of us who read and re-read you is that book. Gratitude to you for sharing and for writing and for feeling with your heart and letting us all feel like we are not alone in this world.

      Funny you should say that, Cindy…that I help you feel you’re not alone in the world…because that’s EXACTLY what sharing my writing with all of YOU has done for me. I can’t imagine this year without my friends to read what’s in my heart. It has helped me tremendously, especially lately, and especially friends like you…You equally put yourself out here by showing up, and writing comments to tell me I matter.

      It keeps the door open to my heart knowing that you’re impacted and care. Thank you for that.
