A Once Blessed Heart


a once blessed heart grown weary
from loss and the holding of hope
where it seemed all hope was lost.
soulworn and scarred by deep silence
and the bitterness of confusion
shaped into the space of fear.
the edges of love grown wicked
from the desperate conflicts within
wild enough to summon storms.
such sorrow is not lightly set aside
and the lines it draws run deep
marking each difficult transition
from soft innocence to wisdom.
a once blessed heart grown weary
hungers to be laid in a balm of care
and gentled to strength once again
by the softness of grace and gratitude.

    Thank you. ;o)
