Soul

Soul arises in the quiet space

The time of rest

After we embraced the early morning

Birds swooped your back

As we walked the gum leaf strewn pathway

Nearby a family played

As we sweltered within the heat

Accompanying the rising of the day

And on the return we took our time

There was no need to hurry

On the drive homeward your beautiful face

Shines radiant with a smile

There is light in your eyes

These special moments are the ones

I most long for

When the demands of a hungry world fall away

And it is just our two heartbeats

Resounding in the silence

I live for this feeling of peace

The sense that life has provided everything

For us

Because we asked

For so little
