only a heart

by the look in your eye
and knowing smile
pain and love come together
in passion and crime
purely by accident
until it is time

by the sound of your voice
a second chance
torne again borne again
out of fire into water
falling to the sky
earth words ever bound

to err is human
forgive divine
only a heart
could see this in time

by the touch of our hands
a reason to believe
a world of possibility set free
step by step and note by note
softly asking why

forgiveness is golden
kindness bliss
only a heart
could understand this
