    What does"it" refer to?

    The Size Of Your Heart
    It isn't the size of your house as such,
    That matters so much at all;
    It's the gentle hand and its loving touch,
    That make it great or small.

    "It" refers to "What matters" in this verse. It also refers generally throughout the poem to the line in the last verse - "How people love you and how they regard ..."
