Of the Heart

With the ears of the heart,

Listen close! Listen close!

Hear the pain of the Other;

From judgment depart.

And with the heart’s eyes,

Can you see? Can you see?

How scars manifest

For to be recognized!

Let’s use the heart’s hands.

Could we heal? Could we heal?

Could we heal each wound

As each moment demands?

Oh, to live out of love!

Can we try? Can we try?

Is there hope that we’ll reach

The world we’re dreaming of?
