Unified Hearts


Where is my darling boy tonight...
May the angels stay close by,
Watching over his every move,
Keeping tears from his eyes

Is he well and feeling content....
That's all that matters to me;
I pray the stars shine brightly for him,
And the sun warms him tenderly

I feel him close, though he's far away,
Thoughts can strongly bind two minds;
If we both reach out to touch the moon,
Our souls will become entwined

As our hearts fly through the endless sky,
They'll hop from star to star,
Holding hands as they go along....
From each other, they'll never be far

    Nice write. Reflects love's strength through distance and that it will never be denied because of that. (Report) Reply

    The poem makes me feel the intensity of love, care and concern of a soul entwined with another as one separated only by space but always together in the heart-space. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
