Heart and Mind

It is almost like there are two sides to all of us.
The emotional and the rational pull different ways but need each other for us to be whole

Heart and Mind

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 do all need a heart.
