a poem

When life hurts
When pain won’t go away
When hope has no hole to shine through
There is love.

When I’m lost
When there is no way out
When faith doesn’t have even fringe to hang by
There is love.

When I can’t see it
When there is no way to feel it
When my heart grows numb from the weight of emptiness
There is love.

Sometimes, Love is waiting for me to be boarded up

Left hanging

Emptied out

So that I can know
really
truly
know

Love strong
Love deep
Love full.

Love waits

Until I’m ready

To recognize it
blind
In the dark.
