The Chasms of Our Minds

The Chasms of Our Minds

Chasms of our Minds, Bridges of our Souls
We came and built understanding growing close day by day
We grew connected to each other we lived in pure light.
Illuminating the world around us we colored it in our dreams.
We thought we were soul mates we reveled in sacredness
Love budded out in springtime but came the killing frost
Insecurity and obligations froze our dreams, cold hearts in kind
Union of body and soul must be nourished if it is to survive.
Giving all if necessary to build the bond of spirit
Erosion weakened the bridges, weakening our resolve
Silence has overtaken covering the bridges in drifts.
Overtaken with resentment, sorrow and emptiness
Perhaps young hearts will find dreams in corners of our
Minds and find our work worthy of another place in time.
Without the burden of past living to tear them apart
Souls will always remember in richness what we gave
Worlds will never be the same for we found part of the way
