{POEM} If Only You Can Hear My Heart

By Odimegwu Onwumere

If only my deepest heart can be heard through words,

If only my heart full of words and imaginations can express itself

Then you will understand how much you have occupied my heart

Than words can possibly express.

My words can be translated into many languages

But you are the one who can translate my heart beat

If only you can listen to my heart beat

You will hear much music crooning in it.

You cannot be expressed my mere words

Even though words can make or mar a coward

Your actions speak of how much I mean to you

And words cannot express the much you have shared.

I no longer see much other than:

Your nose, pointing me to the world,

Your hair, falling all the worries on your shoulder,

Your picture, pointing that you appear the best.

I was bereft of words,

You have made me find one.

If only my deepest heart can be heard through words,

If only my heart full of words and imaginations can express itself

Then you will understand how much you have occupied my heart

Than words can possibly express.
