How Full Can a Heart Get?

How full can a heart get

Until it can take no more?

How many tears can our eyes release

Until the well goes dry?


We move through a desert land

Where the winds of hate blow hard.

It shatters lives

And scatters despair

We can only hunker down.


Send me a dream, a mountain stream

A gentle touch, a kiss.

Hold me close

As I remember love

And find the courage to hope.

Give me enough strength

To help with the work

Of healing a broken world
