Poem: “Heartsong”


Two tender souls reside apart,
Two hearts aflame for Love
That come together seeking, each,
The counsels of the heart.

Two hearts aflame, two souls afire,
Find shelter deep within
And share the strength to gently lift
the other heavenward.

In Love, in Truth, in daily grind
The end remains in sight
There’s no misunderstanding –
Not in matters of the heart.
