​​a heart filled with love

heart opening up to new realities,
I see much more today than any other day,
when dismay was more present, the gifts all around,
did sway

in the breeze gently, head down, furious pace,
lost, and wondering where to turn about…

looking up, the sky always tried to offer solace,
and a way to stay

keeping the pain at bay,
and as

clarity dawned, after much work on heart,
and many tears did
pour forth

cleaning and cleansing all the broken parts,
offering a healing in the light, when at its darkest
was the night

a shining, there was, and meet it, I did, where
time stops, and we’re present to all we’ve done,
and give thanks to

a heart filled with love, that always was…

love shines forth

broken wings,
soft and evergreen,
mended,
with the everlastingness
of the sun’s rays,
dancing yellow, and green, they seem

to heal

from
upside down,
as the pain is turned
inside out, and cleaned throughout…

cascading light,
wishing upon a star
from afar, yet
closer, than realization dawns

as the candle drops,
and, hints…by

speaking in
a language of love
forever kissed, I must admit

your scent lingers
in the air,
fair, as memories
become closer to me
than the breath of you near, and

in this instance,
brokenness becomes
something
altogether witnessed

as love
shines forth, and
we become more,
than you and I
have ever experienced…

whole and complete once more

broken,
my fragments
of being,
call out to me
with such intensity
it makes for
a show
of great propensity.

the desire
to know more,
to be more,
lingers in the heavens
and within my heart,
just like you do,
as I look
at you,
and

remember,

the tides,
rushing
towards me
on that fateful
night.

you fill
the spaces
in between
with light,
and I am
resurrected
in your sight.

recalled,
rejoindered,
and made
whole,
and complete
once more;

I let go

of the fright,
and abide
in the knowing
that everything
has been, is,
and always will be
alright.

hearts fill again

petals grasp
silence,
as the grass
grows taller,
and the weather fonder

a miracle of nature, and
beauty in simplicity,
without conjecture
or the need
for any grand gesture

just silence
and stillness,
amidst the chaos
and shrillness

being,
without thinking,
and living and loving
until our hearts are breaking

and,

inside this
brokenness,
lives the mystery
of all that’s
been promised us

a wholeness,
which lives
and breathes

thus,

remember,
my dear,
that brokenness
mends,
and hearts fill again
