The Guardian (with audio)

Full image credit to Su Jian

I am the guardian of your secrets 
The ones you keep inside 
The truth of who you really are 
All the things you try to hide

I do not judge concealed thoughts 
Or the secrets that you carry 
You can tell me anything 
I’ll listen without commentary

I keep confessions safe and sound 
I protect them until my death 
I will not speak a word out loud 
Even after my very last breathe

I am the keeper of many secrets– 
Of mine, of yours, of theirs 
I am the guardian of deepest desires 
And the blackest of nightmares.

  1. Oh Secrets!!! Wow! This is such a great poem!!! Really love the idea/message and your words, as always, are wonderful whispers to the heart!! Love the thought of having a Guardian, an inner part of us that protects us from ourselves and hides our secrets, “without judgment or condemnation” – The Fort Knox of the Soul” This is one of your best, Dear Secrets!!! And of course, a HUGE thank you for the audio. Your words are always the best when enjoyed with eyes closed and ears attuned to your voice! Bellissimo, My Dear, Bellissimo!
