Natalie: Thank you for joining me today on this third day of the “Spotlight” tour! Today, I’d love to introduce my second and recently published poetry collection, The Heart’s Lullaby.

The Heart’s Lullaby is a candid portrayal of love in all its splendor and pain. ♥

Book Blurb

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.

Echo of Love

I hold on to yesterday

Without it I can’t breathe

They say it gets easier

But they know not your memory.

The power of a thousand suns

Delicate as morning dew

The dawn course of enchantment

This is my memory of you.

But yesterday holds you

Relentless in its grasp

Or is my obsession

That tethers you to the past?

For the winds carry you now

An echo that knows no end

Translucent and enduring

You penetrate everything.

You are the sun that warms my skin

The velvet touch of morning dew

The songbird’s sweet melody

These are the blessings of you.

I’ll always have yesterday

But I don’t need it to breathe

For you’re everywhere and everything

The gentle rain and summer breeze.
