The Golden Heart

Lichen and Granite, Hope Slide, Nicolum Valley, Cascade Mountains, British Columbia, Canada
There is a golden heart
At the centre of my everything
Though oft obscured
Sometimes forgotten

I call for it
In times of need
Or if too dark
It calls on me

It guides me true
Though rarely easy
But I know my path
When e’er I follow

My golden heart
