Heal Me, Hold Me - Poem by Kara Johnstad

You simply love to love
And your earth brings out my heaven

Your finger tips
How they soothe my soul
Send ripples to my heart
In deepest trust
I open to you

Heal me heal me tonight
Hold me ever so tight
These desert rains are falling falling falling
Can you hear my spirit calling calling calling
Calling out your name.

The moon she speaks
To the fullness of this night
You wrap your strong arms around me
Your touch is pure
You guide me to sweet release
Oh, love, open me…

Heal me heal me tonight
Hold me ever so tight
The desert rain is falling falling falling
Can you hear my spirit calling calling
Calling out your name to come and
Guide me home again
To the land of skin on skin
Where just one touch
Is more precious than gold
I slow down every breath
I'm so conscious of this step

I feel fragile
I feel weak
I'm too scared to even speak
Yet I know it's time to be free

You guide me cross the rocks and fields
My body starts to slowly yield
Yes, this is exactly what I need

Your hands are full of love and care
Your eyes are soft, no ugly stares
As the ghosts start to dance frantically

Yes your love is pure
And I endure
The memories as they start to stir
And silent cries they start to release

Yes heal me heal me tonight
Hold me hold me so tight
Just take it real slow
Take real slow

Untie the ribbons wrapped around my soul
Salve my wounds and make me whole
As I place my heart in your hands

You'll find secret places
And oasis
In this land of skin on skin
As you guide me back home again

As your fingers tap and gently slap
As you smoothe and gently move
You're making this desert green again

Yes there are jewels in these caverns
And a song in every pore
Skin on skin
Deep within
I learn to trust in love again

Heal me heal me tonight
Hold me ever so tight
The desert rain is falling falling falling
Can you hear my spirit calling calling calling
Calling out your name

Spoken:

Only a holy man
From desert sands
Could intuitively understand
The deserted barren lands
That held a well deep within

From a hollow to a cavern
Beyond her dry rough skin
Lay her most precious jewel
Which she had kept
Protected from the winds
