why does my heart bleed

why does my heart bleed?

because I do not know the answer…

why does my heart bleed?

because my child is lost…

why does my heart bleed?

because I do not know how to help

why does my heart bleed?

because I am afraid

why does my heart bleed?

because I cannot bear losing another person

we are all interconnected

we are all part of one another

we are called to lift each other up

we are called to BE there for the other

we are ONE

a child’s heart

daffodil freshness

first opening itself to the Spring air

Soaking in the love and warmth

of the SUN …

with no pretense

no preconceptions…

delicate promise
