Heart and soul revised

A heart can break without a sound.
A tear can fall to hit the ground.
No one standing near can tell.
There's not a sign to break the spell.
A soul can shatter separate.
still leave the body standing straight.
The outer shell can smile and talk.
While the soul is on its lonely walk.

Bereft of light and peace it flies
Its quest to reach towards the sky.
Blackness holds it fast in space.
Forever locked in time and place.
Just one touch of human hand
can raise that soul to reach for light
Then mend the heart its hope revive.
To lift its wing's to give it flight

A rescued soul is unconfined.
No chains can hold it fast.
It flies towards the heavens.
Then comes falling back to earth
Cascading down it twinkles,
like a thousand shining stars.
It steals its light from heavens brim
then walks it round the world.

When the human heart has hope renewed
its flight makes angels weep
It overcomes each earthly task.
Its promises to keep.
The path it follows straight and true
Its destiny to meet.
Its sighs can reach to heaven,
When love is what it seeks.

    Noreen, you nearly blew me away with the balance of the spiritual/dichotomy in the first paragraph and the last stanza is beyond beautiful. Great write! Cheers!

    I always admire a poet who is able to write a poem in rhyme.....that is when it is well done as is this one.

    What a lovely poem! I remember having posted a comment earlier! But unfortunately now I understand that it didn't reach you! Human heart breaks with no explosive sound! But one touch from a loving hand can fuel the breaking heart with life and it may take wings and fly! It is love and understanding from fellow beings, that everyone seeks! !

    Beautiful, heart warming Noreen

    A good poem, with a very optimistic ending. I would have liked at least one more verse though.
