A realm of heart
Some times in moments of despair
That so often darkens life
I let my mind flow free
Beyond the things that can imagine
One who sees only with his eyes
And not with beating burning heart.
For there in the deep of heart
I look for medicine for despair
To bring new vision to my eyes
To feel again a breath of life
To let dreams dare I imagine
Come true and fly ahigh and free!
Wherever wish I, I am free
And no one can force my heart
Or, say, prohibit to imagine
Although one can put despair
And sadness in my course of life
Or cover with a pain my eyes.
Heart’s sight is sharper than the eyes’
Which are in fact not all that free
Because illusion is the life
That may trick mind, not the heart;
In order to withstand despair
Create a world of yours - imagine!
The deepest sea you might imagine
Invisible for human eyes
Could sink forever you despair
And once again you will be free
You will rejoice to very heart
You will remember taste of life!
It’s not an easy thing, a life.
You now think you all imagine
And then you enter realm of heart
An inaccessible for eyes
But real, true and always free
For any soul in despair.
Despair is a part of life
But feel free always to imagine
Not with your eyes, with heart.
