Healing Words

By Keith Vander Wees

I wish I knew a word
to help you heal inside,
a million words in a poem
that I could write.
Id kiss your lips forever
till all the pain was gone,
the walls
from those not worthy of your love.
I held you close
and felt your heart beat to time, but,
as we lay there longer
I saw
the beating was both yours, and mine.
Can we both
create this healing
from when our lips had first touched?
Two hearts that love
so deeply,
and so deeply,
so much.

2019 Keith Vander Wees
