Heart Rising

Composite image of heart

No amount of days
can hold down a healing heart,
no matter how many setbacks
and disappointments,
the heart still rises in the east
to greet the light,
kiss the cheek of devastation
and heartbreak

Though the mind may
settle in the valley for a time,
the heart keeps watch on the peaks
until the mind climbs up
to reunite in wholeness once again

You may furrow your brow in doubt,
for the heart seems a fragile instrument
and yet I ask,
“Does the heart not beat
each and every day?”

In the darkest of times
it is the heart,
despite its own brokenness,
that labors to keep love alive
and you, dear friend,
are Love
