Until we change our hearts

Look at time and wonder why
It ever came to be
A veil unknowing shadows cursed
A world within regrets

What of the heart and of the head
Shall come to ever after
Return into another realm
Of lovers wrapped in lace

One day forsaken in the light
Found stolen years of youth
When leaving left them waiting for
The shadows of the night

Fall upon this path we’ve walked
Lies truth within the mind
We will never change the world
Until we change our hearts …

 

Pause

Would there be art
if we did everything
a well as we can

Let life mimic
every note of music
every line of verse
each brush stroke on canvas
every strike of the chisel
(notes on marble)

pause in our lives
(we step away)
looking at reflections
in mind and memory
missing what we did
long for what will be
will it to be art
past tense is practice
the future a dream
every day now
minutes and hours
(ours to love)
hold and let go
each a moment
to give a gift
to life
