The Heart Knows
It knows. it knows... when the search is over.
It knows long before the ship arrives at our destined port,
it hears it in the sound of the oars catching water,
it tastes it in the air.
It knows the day is breaking,
smells the sunrise in the wind.
The heart knows, because she has been here before.
Below the decks, I listen to the story of your first kiss,
when you were young, running, and chasing frogs, catching fireflies in jars... love shook them, so they shone,
A lighthouse in your hand.
The heart knows, old friend, safe port,
