The tempo of life

Love is so fragile yet euphoric 
Hearts are so tender yet soft as cotton
Feelings are full of emotion yet harbor despair
Passion is vital to lust yet fear shrouds all 
Isolation is penance for comfort but perceived as a weakness
Human souls bury attachment yet leave room for warmth
Alas the frozen tundra of malice 
Thaws under the warmth of hope
Storms begin to fade
Rivers of tears flooding the porcelain skin 
Can be found drying up from the radiant gleam of happiness
The world stops and time begins to fade 
Trees begin to harmonize in an angelic tone 
Mirrors once harboring 
Shattered and broken pieces 
Once used for stinging and exposing sins of our nature
Are now being sewn back into the frame of growth
Hearts once frail and weak
Begin to dance to the tempo of life
Emotions take center stage 
Preaching the gospel of love
