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 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
are what give life much joy
and make all things good.
