Poems of the Heart


You've touched my heart.
Deeply.
Reached in and brought out
the part I too often hide.
Helped me to see
Life
from a different perspective.
Given me tears
to wash away the pain.
Shown me that I'm
not alone.
Been
my friend.

Helping one another
Until we all can say
My brothers and my sisters
Are all who come my way.
No strangers in my household.
I'd like to know your name.
Trust means much more than gold.
You know, we're much the same.

I question the moment
I understood you.
You changed then.
You, whose breath I
listened for, now
speak in other directions.

What I am now
is not what I was
yesterday,
and I will change again
tomorrow.
Each day I am
someone new.
