What Lies Inside

Written by: Jim Skinner

    He keeps a little piece of her inside , a look
a smile ,a song ,a gentle thought.
She keeps a little piece of him inside ,a word
a touch ,a kiss, a kindness done.
He keeps hidden close inside the dream 
of the way life should be.
She holds on faithfully to the  idea
of the way love is supposed to be. 
Apart they are two souls that long 
to be whole .
Together they hold 
the pieces of the puzzle that fit  
 together to make them one.
