My wayward heart

It played the part

Of fancy free

With ease and skill.

It danced along

Each piper’s song

But all too soon, 

It skipped, until
It met your heart

And thought it smart 

To prance along

And ride the thrill
But then it found

There was no ground

No place to go

No plain, no hill
In every space

It saw your face

How to forget

It could not will
Wayward no more

My heart is for

Your love alone

Now it is still.
