Response to Shattered Glass

I found a beautiful shattered heart
Floating out in space
I gathered all the pieces
It's sadness to erase

Each piece was filled with love
That was the glue I used
How could this thing of beauty
Have been so abused

Once it was reconstructed
Each part perfectly placed
I prayed to my Father
To have the scars erased

Now it has been retuned
Healed and so much lighter
Filled with the Love of God
It now shines even brighter

Dedicated to Elizabeth O'Driscoll, after reading her poem "Shattered Glass". Please take time to read her Poem, it is beautifully written.
