Treasure Island

Doris Cornago

Bound By Heart

I have known men in many ways

They are not to be compared

As better or best but weighed

By heart who was most honest

Gave all with none in return

Stayed on even in darkness

Asked not to be sent home

Even when the crowd is gone.

Most men will want some silence

Just a chance to hold your hand

Some would want more than a look

Would not persist for love if none

But the best watches by my side

Extends a helping hand, or more

Would bring a gift of comfort

Or share of his own a new song.

These men believe the best of me

And so the best of me I gave them

Whether a word of truth about me

Or Word they seek in their hearts

Because the best are comfortable

With their masculinity, never

Would display ego for my scrutiny

Bound by heart, we dwelt within.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem came up when I remembered a man whom I knew in my 'previous life' in active ministry. He was my assistant in Creative Ministry and we were able to accomplish many beautiful projects for evangelistic purposes. He was inspired by me, as well as I am of him. My ministry friends loved me beyond selfish reasons because we have Christ in our hearts and He binds us together.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
