The golden thread that binds our hearts together
or is it a thread just waiting to
Called a heart-warming feeling,
But is it really just anger boiling up inside?
And when it bubbles over and leaves you wounded,
With a gaping
unable to be refilled.
Until another person comes along and the thread re-ties itself,
And so when the church bells fail to ring,
You remember: The Golden Thread is such a fickle thing.
