Heart of Stone… a poem

Heart stone


I found this heart of stone

Laying on a broken path

Its edges were worn and rough

One side full the other half

It occurred to me at that moment

When I placed it in my hand

This lonely heart of stone

Is like the lonely heart in man

Weathered from the years

Damaged again and again

Hardened over time

It will never be the same

Covered and uncovered

Abandoned and alone

Lost to the world – forgotten

This lonely heart of stone

And yet, there is still hope

From a simple little act

As I hold this heart of stone

It lives again – with contact
