My heart

My heart knows your heart
deep secrets of your island beat
the sweetness of the bread fruit tree
my heart knows your heart
it beats for me.

My heart hears the pain
loneliness of childhood tears
fear of death that blights the soul
glint of knife in soft sweet skin
my heart knows your heart
it let me in.

My heart feels your warmth
it radiates across this gulf
of culture creed & race
it melts the edges of the snow
the icy cold that’s frozen me
my heart feels your heart

it’s melted me.
