HOW TO MEND A BROKEN HEART (POEM)

Wrap with prayer, in a layer of care

Once blessed and caressed, let it rest.

 * * *

Then take a thread from a skein of hope

And a needle, bathed in kindness

And polished with soft compassion

 * * *

Softly thread the needle

And gently make the first stitch

Smooth out the thread

If there’s no resistance, continue

 * * *

Weave the needle in and out

Adding good memories

Peace and serenity

 * * *

If at any time the needle should catch

Just wait with patience

And when all’s quiet, proceed

 * * *

Finally, when you’ve reached

The end of the tear

Take some scissors

Shiny with love

 * * *

Cut the thread

And tie an everlasting knot of peace

Not just once, but twice

Then once more to make sure

 * * *

Leave for some time

Till the stitches dissolve

And light, love and hope enter

Behold – the heart is whole
