Stone Heart - Poem by Mary Ann Najjar

My eyes can see you
But my heart cannot reach you…
My hand is touching you
But I cannot feel you…
We are together
But you seemed so million miles away
And I am so lonely…

I am cold
But your arms are frozen to warmth me…
I need you
But your ears are deaf to hear my grief
And your stone heart is numbed to ease my solitude…

I am tired and I want to give up
But my heart is patient and keen to remain
Until your stone heart will thaw
