From Heart to Heart
Abraham Joshua Heschel
So short a distance - from heart to heart.
If I experience my self, my desires,
why not also you and yours?
Millions of eyes seek and fail to find one another.
Each shuns the other, like hungry spiders.
Who does not carry in his breast love, gratefulness to others?
Let me openly confess my longing for you!
And like a bridge spanning a thousand lands
which separate you from me,
let me, myself, lie down to reach you.
