Opening the Chambers of the Heart
Poem By Levi Sap Nei Thang
In the realm of dreams, where whispers linger,
A message arrived, my soul aching to sing.
But I, timid, hid behind a shield of indifference,
Afraid to expose the chambers of my heart’s longing.
Yet there you stood, unyielding and steadfast,
With every knock, a rhythm that danced.
Resistance crumbled, barriers faded,
And your presence, like autumn leaves, enchanted.
With trembling hand, I opened the door,
And let your gentleness caress my weary soul.
In the depths of vulnerability, we bonded,
A bond so rare, a story to be fondly told.
Now entwined we are, in this dance of life,
Love’s gentle symphony guiding our way.
For in surrendering to the knocking of fate,
We found strength with each passing day.
So let us cherish, dear heart, this precious gift,
A message once ignored, now our life’s refrain.
And with gratitude, we embrace this love divine,
For in your persistent knocking, forever we remain.
