The Human Heart

How poignant the human heart,
how vulnerable in its longing.
It seeks, and seeks, and seeks
the answers to the questions that
only the Heart of Love can answer.
It asks the walls around itself
why they are still there,
how they can be taken down.
But the walls are often silent.
They stand, implacable and
resolute, until the day
when love’s promise comes
to the longing heart,
and opens the doors it did not know
were closed, and says:
“You can come out now.
The doors are open. You are free.”
On that day the heart rejoices
for the time of its waiting has ended,
the waiting it thought would never end,
and a new time begins.
