A small prayer
for kindness
for love

A soft longing
for affability
for friendship

A discrete desire
for compassion
for empathy

A simple want
for tenderness
for care

A minute search
for a smile
for a wink

Soul was praying,
longing, wanting

A little softness
A little silence
A small key

A small key
to open the heart
A bit of silence

A gush of love
of kindness, of friendship
of big compassion

A huge stream
never ending
an open heart

An ocean of bliss
flooding the world
engulfing my soul

Silently gushing
quietly flooding
softly engulfing

A little prayer
A little longing
A little search

The key is never far away.
