My Heart Has Broken Open

My heart has broken open
And all that comes out
Is an ocean of love

It floods the dry plains
And the desert
Where most people live

It softens the fire that rages
In man
And brings hope
To those
Trapped in fear

The ocean of love
Is like water
To a parched man.

But the heart must crack open
For this nectar to flow.

There is no substitute
For this
And there is no love water
You can buy
That will work.

This oasis must be found
Amongst the many mirages
We meet in the desert.

When I first tasted
This sweet water
From the ocean of love
I changed forever
And I danced
And sang a song
Of such joy
The birds joined in.
Blackbird in the rain
