Soul Balm…

Souls and lips,
Balm to heal,
Hearts to steal,
And soothe,
And mend,
And warm,
With fire,
With soup,
With bread,
To shape,
To rise,
To feel,
The flame,
The tale,
The loss,
The memory,
Once found,
Once discovered,
Once upon a hearth,
Once upon a homestead,
Once upon a life,
Upon a soul,
Upon lips,
Upon all.
