Kindness ll

Your hands on my shoulder
Is a gift of kindness
for a broken mind
Like the ice on the core of the sun
With a serene smile
that makes me shine

The strings in your grasp
Wane the clouds of this sky
Of the sombre and forlorn night
That departs with the dawn
That comes with painful light

Now I see the infrequent moon
With its guiding light
And your serene gaze
Towards the stars

With your known gentleness
You clear this endless haze
And entice me to move
With an urge to climb

Now you turn to embrace
With a barefaced love
To anchor my eyes
As a steadfast soul
That extends his hands

But with a smile
You depart
From my mended world
Weaved by your love

But no my only friend
You cannot sleep
Till I am awake in this world

When you pervade
In the totem of your love
In the gleaming moon
Or the diffusing sky
Or the crystalline ways
Or the firmness in my stride
Towards the place where you have gazed
And anchored my eyes

Now I fall and rise
And clambering to breast
To grasp what I desire
For the resolute mien
That I will never lose
When it is the relic of my artisan
