To Connect

To really get to know someone,

You have to see his/her soul

To see the soul, you have to get through the mind

Read his/her thoughts

Then hear the heart

Listen to what it says

Know its dreams, hopes, and even fears,

What makes it happy and sad

Then the souls are no longer an acquaintance

To My Heart and Mind

There is no way I can run away from you

You are like a shadow

Your life is intertwined with mine

There is no hiding, no escaping

Some things are just beyond control

Oh my stubborn mind, please cooperate

Open yourself up and be more accepting

Oh my frightened heart, you have to calm down

Open yourself up and be more forgiving

Love is the answer, let it flow from within

One step at a time

Believe you will get there!
