What Elevates a Heart

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


What elevates a heart,

is often wordless,

words lost to the mundane,

is often without intent,

actions a deliberate ploy,

is often selfless,

attributing no end,

is often connection,

when worlds find common ground,

is often acceptance,

when difference pleads understanding,

and is often sacrifice,

when no expectations are drawn.


What elevates a heart,

is often nearness,

a silent and all encompassing support,

is often knowing,

a serene surrendering of ego,

is often sharing,

the oneness of mutual experience,

is often successes,

when nothing of self is gained,

is often despair,

a trial of pain and anguish shared,

and is often forgiveness,

for the imperfect beings we are.


What elevates this heart....is you.
