Let Time Heal


A cut in the finger
heals as time moves on
by every tick of a second.

A wound in the heart
heals as time swoops down
to sweep away
all hurts into sea of strength
all fears to confidence
all anger to pinch of love.

Let time heal
the nasty cut on your finger
Let time heal
the bleeding wound
in your heart.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
