You Are A Kindness

You had a mystery about you
And I saw it in your eyes
From the moment that I met you
You caught the crowd by surprise.

Maybe those eyes covered in sadness
And for that heart there was a plan
Someday, someone would catch your madness
And let yourself live free again.

Perhaps there was another passion
That was yet to be revealed
A hopeful voice, in usual fashion
Whispering “please just be still,

Stop running, searching, contemplating,
Breathe, and let you mind just soar,”
Because there was a human waiting,
One that you had not met before.

For a moment you remembered
How it was to really feel,
A child dancing in September
To cry, to know that it was real,

To imagine, to let go,
To live a life that’s being lived
You are not the thoughts you know
You are more than You’ve believed!

And one day you’ll see it too
How you light up every room
And those tears that you once knew
Won’t be coming back so soon.

One calls the Heart

It’s not a matter of where one comes fromtumblr_mgdn8k4LSc1qlr3ufo1_1280

But rather where the heart belongs
Years of residing in such a place
Longing for something besides empty space
The heart was planted where it has begun
Forever shall stand, being guarded by none
Searching for places it may never go
A hunger to find a home to grow
One will return to the place he comes from
For the love in the heart is the one only home.
