Un­chain my heart

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - By NANCE BUR­NETT

Un­chain my heart

Oh, never shall we kiss or touch

Or speak but mun­dane words

Although we yearn to know so much

Of hearts that fly like birds

And now we pass with eye alight,

We smile but do not speak

For oth­ers watch and you are right:

My heart rules. I am weak.

I’ll never hold your hand in mine

And never speak your name

For fate and cir­cum­stance com­bine

To put our love to shame.

The rain and dark­ness hides my tears

For love which can­not be

And heals th­ese wounds beyond th­ese years.

Un­chain my heart. Be free.
