Heart Speaks


speaks plain words

that mind complicates

and tongue stumbles over

and hands shake

and eyes well

and Heart speaks

in whispers.


Ears hear

that all songs

cry freedom.


Words fail

shoulders slump

feet shuffle

to the beat.


Heart speaks

strong for a while

then slowly weaker

with the days.


Eyes dim

and hands stiffen

and ears hear

Heart speaks.


Tick tock

time passes

child’s eyes

final breaths.


Mouth smiles

arms embrace

soul remembers

Heart speaks.


HG – 2017
