An open heart that embraces life,
Is a yearning to see more,
Of the Beloved’s intention,
To create a place that can be shared,
By, hopeful trust,
Shared among friends.
A heart broken,
Is a heart that tasted life,
The yearning turning to aching,
Beloved’s intention thwarted by mine,
Shared places taken by selfish intent,
Lived with strangers.
A heart broken open,
To experience more of life,
Yearning and aching to understand,
All of love’s capacity
To feel it’s painful care,
Waiting to be shared.
