​I bequeath
my heart to you.
It is all I have left
of any real value.
Please accept it
with no strings attached.
The love it contains
is unmatched.

I bequeath
my heart to you.
Please care for it
and keep it safe.
It holds the memories
of a love for the ages,
but I can no longer
bear the ponderous weight.

I bequeath 
my heart to you.
It is yours
to do with as you will.
Though I carried it
for all of my life,
it was always yours,
and is yours still.
