Listen With Your Heart

Rose Marie Streeter



Can you not remember?
the bond that made us whole?
love, respect and friendship
our promise...
paved in gold


Circumstance played leapfrog
'n words got in the way
our love misplaced, forgotten
with feelings...
gone astray

Misunderstanding lingers
for what we thought was heard
past hurts came back to torment
tangled up our...
words

Memories can be haunting
within the bloody scars
want to be loved, accepted
for who we are..
inside

Sometimes the spirit crumbles
with words, although to tease
reopen a wound, an issue
again it starts to..
bleed

Please?
Can we start all over?
try again, brand new
think back 'n remember
reflect on what really matters
what's left...
of me and you

Bit by bit revealing
parts of our private lives
with trust 'n understanding
released our inner...
thoughts

We sang sweet songs, together
danced in the pouring rain
shared hopes, desires, secrets
'til hearts could smile...
again

Remember evening chatter?
when world was fast asleep
whispers 'pon our pillows
slipped into slumber...
dreams

Somehow I have this feeling
that what you thought...
you heard,
isn't what I meant, at all
to you, were hurtful...
words

Listen with your heart
as I tell you
what I really meant to say
I'm sorry that I hurt you
please, don't walk...
away

We're hiding in the shadows
of a very lonely place
regret 'n hurt is stealing
what in our hearts...
was placed

New doors began to open
all fear was set aside
opening selves up, removing
tight shackles...
foolish...pride

Can't we talk it over?
make right what now seems wrong
sort out the weeds that fester
where happiness...
belongs

Words flow
from a soul awakened
a deepest part of me
can we smooth out the bumps...
together?
rebuild, what used...
to be?

The promise was forever
mistakes we both have made
waltz back with me, remember
'fore time takes it all...
away

Words can be of great comfort, joy, 

make us smile, feel loved...

Sometimes they are misunderstood 

and cause heartache and tears,
make us feel alone. 

We've all been there in that we have misunderstood
what someone said or our own words were misinterpreted.
And so it goes...on the pathway of life..

Listen with your heart and speak

with guided tongue choosing words
Carefully as they are a powerful tool

that can either hurt or heal ones
spirit...forevermore!
