Marriage of Head and Heart

It is a blessed union
When head and heart marry
For them to be sure
That they agree with one another
Brings peace to the whole body
But this is a seldom pairing
Because the head has a loud voice
Filled with too many opinions
And doubts shrouded as bravado
In the worn suit of great intent
And the input device of ears
Often bring more problems than solve
For too many believe they are entitled
To freely spew their suggestions
Of what is ultimately best
For a life they don’t have to live
And the heart
Often too free with forgiveness and excuse
Fear of feeling empty, abandoned and in pain
Another shield painted with too much pleasing
Defence mechanisms always at the ready
Until acceptance arrives
Constantly needing a reminder of its presence
A chemical flow from the very top to the toe
In the bliss of complete surrender
And the wedding march plays
In the silence of release
To the greatest knowledge of the angels
