May Both Hearts Know

When I listened to you
It suddenly hit me
I felt your pain and your fear
You’re so, oh so afraid
to be abandoned once again

And so you abandon all the time
You abandon people and places
You go out of contact,
You run away, disappear
And wander restless
around in this world
You won’t stay anywhere long enough
You are the one that leaves
Instead of others leaving you

Your pain, your fears
We’re so much interrelated
I feel yours as though
they are mine
Your tears and my tears flow
together into a common river

I kiss your wounded heart, my love
Please can you then kiss mine
I dress it with my touch
May both hearts heal and know
In depth they are whole
and they beat as one
And therefore
can never be abandoned by each other
