Tattoos on my Heart

Tattoo heart

Some I’ve passed in life’s journey

left tattoos inked upon my heart;

Indelible piercings still remain

even though we are far apart…

Marking memories of times gone by

never to be removed, no matter how I try.

Good and bad // I remember them well

along with all the back-stories they tell.

Joy and pain have left their mark…

images tattooed upon my heart.

Some I hide and wish they were gone;

Others shine brightly like a dearly loved song.

All are foundation stones right from the start…

signatures of love engraved on my heart.

  1. “All are foundation stones right from the start…
    signatures of love engraved on my heart.”- How beautiful!
    What a poignant poem. Our hearts contain tattoos of all colours- joy, sadness, guilt, all of it…
    This poem really made me look within and feel them for a moment.

  2. Better than a tattoo, though you wish you could rub some memories out! I like your grateful attitude here: whoa! grateful + attitude = gratitude. Sorry, Dwight, it’s Friday afternoon. ;>)
