Mind And Heart And Soul

Poem By Lisa Carter

A stranger asked me
For my mind
Which I willingly
Gave
Without another thought.

A stranger asked me
For my heart
Which I willingly
Gave
Without another beat.

A stranger asked me
For my soul
But that I could
Not give,
My mind, my heart I might not must,
But soul I need to live.

interesting take. i’ve never heard the mind, heart, & soul relayed such as you’ve done here. liked it, Sus

Even a breeze can shake the trees
And steal a leaf or two.

Two Eyes For The Skies

One night
Was sure to blind my eyes,
And so I bowed my head
