One Heart

It’s like standing in the middle of a field
with no trees
no animals
no one
Though the grass is green and lush
Though the sky is blue
the air is warm
smelling of sweet scents
and life is good
It’s empty
hollow
every sound I make echoes
off invisible walls
It’s lonely here
lonely without you
it only takes one person
to fill this vast space
one body to warm
the coldest nights
one pair of eyes and hands
to remind me it’s all ok
it’s ok to be alone
it’s ok to cry
It only takes one heart
to fill this space with joy
as long as that heart is yours love
only if it’s yours
