Hearth

Hearth

It seems so unreal what I begin to feel
And yet a few kind words is all it takes
To comfort my soul, to liberate
My heart, my Love, from this 'time and space'
Beyond distractions to an effortless escape
Where the stars abound and the fireside awaits

Yet from all the fears whence came these tears
Those moments of feeling, flesh out the years.
We fall through space, we fly through time
To be in that place, where love is sublime.
Yet, kindness comes, and we understand
Only truth and love have full command!

The hearth fire on which this axis turns
Is the heart that warms and the love that burns
And when beyond the stars we leap,
We find no longer shall we weep,
But stay awhile in love's lost room
In the splendour of our own bright moon.
