I Left My Heart.....

Back from a conference in San Francisco
He planted dreams in her guileless mind
Painting word pictures of
The Top of the Mark
Coit Tower
Lombard Street.


Promised herself someday
She would see it, too
That City by the Bay.

Forty years passed
Hotel drapes were opened
To a view of that famous bridge
The Golden Gate.
Tears welled in her eyes
Finally, she was there.




.......High on a hill, it calls to me.
