Dedicated to Love…and loving hearts everywhere.
May you find the courage to love, starting with your Self, and more importantly, may you find the courage to let in the love of another who loves you courageously.
I think it was somewhere in your eyes
Which just happen to be my favorite color of a beautiful soul
That I saw truths of my own.
I realize that
This journey of life makes no sense to me
Unless we give…
But I don’t have much to give you right now
Except this heart I’ve managed to put back together
And it was just recently
That I found tape strong enough
To keep the broken pieces together
While it heals.
I know it’s not the best looking heart
But it works well, I swear!
It has much love to give…
To the one who won’t deliberately break it into all of those pieces again.
But who am I to tell you not to judge a book by its cover
When it is I who saw your heart
And decided that based on the tape
You’ve used to hold it together
Your heart wasn’t capable of loving or giving.
It is kind of ironic
That I thought that
Since what I actually saw, and I realize this now,
Is that your heart mirrors mine.
And it doesn’t matter how we’ve put our hearts back together
Until we each choose to put each of our hearts to use and love another
We won’t be able to heal completely
Because what loving another provides is that practice we need
To suture the pieces together mindfully.
And I cannot tell you whom to love
Or to even try
All I know is that my heart
Is ready to love a heart
That reflects mine.
Knowing that actually makes my heart smile.
Love, it is with joy in my soul
That I can honestly say
I am ready now.
I am in no rush,
So do take your time,
But when you’re ready,
I hope you accept the love
Of this imperfect heart of mine.
