Poetry

Warm Hands

My heart is battered
bruised, broken
healing comes
but much isnít spoken
and silence makes the heartís wounds fester
a heart needs gentle words
it needs two warm hands to heal it
what do you see in my heart?
what do you feel when you hold
your hand up to its heat?
I wonder
Can you feel the cracks in its thin
Veneer of brokenness?
the cracks which could no longer hold
untill my heart began to spill
every waking moment
will you hold it?
will you keep it for your own
and with your love make it whole?
my heart is battered,
it will want to crumble
but you can hold it
your hands can contain it
if you decide
because your hands heal
their magic is as old as
Godís mercy
and as comforting

so I give you my heart
and trust in your
hands divinity
let their light set it free to shine
