Shared Hearts

Shadows creep 
                on silent feet
as day's warm light dissolves
and as the veil drops o'er the land,
so human heart does fall

We seek out comfort
              kindred souls
as faith and spirit fail
and as our minds drift far away,
towards home, on lifted sails

And sometimes, 
        in our fevered thoughts,
we make untold mistakes,
which haunt us when the morning calls
and clearer views awake

And so
        we hide our human wounds
as soldier on we must
and push deep down our troubled fears
and wonder who to trust

The answer's there
       inside your heart
Search deep within and find
that all along, you've known the truth
the heart you trust--is mine.
