On Heart-holds and the Flipside of Hello



I'm glad hearts hold more than arms
for they are big enough 
to enfold and hold forever
those we dearly love

A few things happened this week-end to make me realize how thankful I am that hearts hold what arms can't!

You don’t want to go
I know
The tug-of-war twixt hearts can take
Our breath away
And leave us feeling
The full impact of love’s ache

I don’t want to go,
You know
Farewell is hard, our hearts and eyes
Brim with the
Overflowing measure
Of love’s bittersweet goodbyes

We don’t want to go
But we know
Nothing lasts forever so
We embrace, kiss faces
Knowing
Hearts never really let go
