Heart and Soul

Heart and Soul

push me gently against the wall

kiss me as if you are last breath

scrambling for life

wounded soldier journeying home

seeking peace from waking nightmares

two loving eyes: blue soul windows

seeing my heart and soul

turn your key in my lock

joining two into one

sanctuary for heart and soul

  1. Unconditional love really does have the infinite power to heal our bodies, souls and minds. The poem was inspired by a former soldier who I had the privilege of having a long and insightful conversation with. He was hoping for healing and someone to love him. Those who fights battles within or without can have much to teach us.
