He says he wants to move,
But she’s afraid to go.
He begs and pleads for her to follow his lead,
But she can’t shake the burdensome worry that beguiles her.
His motives are pure, he wants them both to be happy.
She wants to make him happy, but forces beyond her control keep her from following.
He waits with her.
Together they wait.
He brings it up no more.
She sees that he is right.
She knew he was always right.
If she could, she would follow him to the ends of the unknown,
She would face her biggest fears.
But reason holds her back.
He tries to be content;
He tries to hide his pain.
Staying with her is more important;
He couldn’t leave her if he tried.
Who would have thought that these are the happenings
Of the lovers: Heart and Mind?
