Heart and Mind

heartandmindcrop

The restless heart will sigh again
The restless heart will mope
And all of us can feel the strain
Or some of us lose hope

The wandering mind may soar again
The wandering mind may cope
Then none of us need feel the strain
And none of us need mope

For wandering minds will find new ways
As they seek new insight
While wandering to the end of days
They’ll take us to the height

The heart may soar with hope and faith
Or seek to love and care
And sometimes haunted by a wraith
May slump into despair

Then restless hearts will cry again
And restless hearts lose hope
The mind is there to bear the strain
The mind is there to cope

But restless minds may sigh again
And restless minds may mope
And all of us can feel the strain
And some of us lose hope

Then faithful hearts may soar again
Then faithful hearts may cope
Then none of us need feel the strain
And none of us need mope

For faithful heart and wandering mind
May well be poles apart
No matter what new thoughts we find
We all do need a heart
