Healing

This moment,
this now,
lived,
cherished,
embraced,
brings healing.

 

This moonlight,

this late

February chill.

These words,
paltry,
faltering,
offered up
to Love, for Love,
bring healing.

 

This silence,

this mute prayer,

this heartbeat.

Who knows

what deep wounds
we help to heal
with small gestures:

a word, a smile,

a listening ear,

an uncalculated

kindness?

I've been following your wonderful series, progressing through a life, with great interest. It's beautiful and sometime it should be all together in a book. Read one after the other is the way it should be read. Healing is such an important step we all need to take. Well done!
