The crossing of your arms
Is like the drawing of a bridge,
The last defense to keep me out—
Your heart’s perfected hedge.
Your attitude declares,
“All trespassers beware!”
To pass your fortifications
Would take a hero’s heart to dare.
But he who has a heart
Can see what you really need;
The walls you built do nothing more
Than cage you in your grief.
You need compassion
To wear away your walls;
Eroding them with strokes of love
Until they finally fall;
A little love can do
What arrows never will,
And loose your heart from all the chains
As secret longings at last are filled.
Your arms will open up,
Unfastening your door;
Then ’cause someone has offered love
Your heart will blossom to the core.
Your attitude has changed,
A smile now lights your face
And welcomes all to enter in
To taste a bit of grace.
