MY HEART, by                    
First Line: If you could see into my heart
Last Line: With joy instilled . . . It wills to live!
Subject(s): Desire; Love

If you could see into my heart
And find the aches, and where they start,
The vial of tears that's instilled there
Made of that which angels share . . .
If you could see the heavenly strings
So delicate . . . yet tender things . . .
You would not wish to make them wail
With mournful sobs, as in travail,
But you would seek to make them sing
Of life, of joy, of everything.
The heart is, ah, so sensitive,
With joy instilled . . . it wills to live!
