About the Poem

This poem was written as a response to a friends plea for help. I told him to look inside himself...and that's what this poem is doing. asking anyone who reads it to look inside themselves to find whatever they are searching for.


Close your eyes,
To see with your heart,
Close your ears,
To hear with your heart,
Forget your mind,
And think with your heart.

For your heart will see,
When your eyes fail,
And your heart will hear,
When the voices are confused,
Your heart has the answers,
When your mind falls short.

Remember your heart,
For it is the key to love,
Remember all love,
For love is the key to your soul,
Remember your soul,
For it is your Foundation.

I am a songwriter, and "Soul" by Eric Galla , made me shiver. Eric, if you ever read this, thank you. Noone has ever composed a better explanation of what it's all about.
