Who do you talk to about matters of the heart and soul?


Do you whisper in the dark hoping someone might hear?


Do you say just a little

to a friend, a lover,

someone who is near,

but hold back so as not to trouble them

with situations unclear?


You hire people to help you

with your appliances,

your cleaning,

your car, and home’s heat,

but what about the things

that make your heart skip a beat?


When will you find someone who will sit

to listen and care and not throw a fit?


For matters of the heart and soul

when understood,

are what give life much joy

and make all things good.
