Arrow to your soul

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)

I am the arrow to your heart
Our love you'll find will never part
The part of me that remains in you
Will see through every part of you
For you are heart through and through
There is nothing I would rather do
Than listen to your heartbeat in two

And if I fall from your heart
Remember I loved you from the start
You pass me by like I was just a flirt
But I was your soulmate left in the dirt
And when God lifts me back to my feet
I will raise my hands to worship who I meet
Because I was wrong to pierce your soul
More wrong than I will ever know

But if you let my heart fill the hole that I left
Our hearts would beat a hole in your breast
As our newborn replaces such loss
This love will see you with eyes like emerald moss
Filling your heart and soul with gloss
