      These scars on my soul are beautiful and painful,
Deep gashes that cannot be seen except in my eyes;
           The sorrow I keep within me is dreadful,
My short life has been full of death and whys.

      Deep gashes that cannot be seen except in my eyes,
I thought the passage of time would heal the scars;
            My short life has been full of death and whys,
At night all my beloved are the sparkling stars.

      I thought the passage of time would heal the scars,
I take two white roses to the tomb of my babies;
            At night my beloved are the sparkling stars,
My forever grief is full of long past sweet reveries.

      I take two white roses to the tomb of my babies,
Weeping I touch all the names engraved in stone;
           My forever grief is full of long past reveries,
Within my soul the forever sorrow still moans.

      Weeping I touch all the names engraved in stone,
Yet from this pain something beautiful was to be;
            Within my soul the forever sorrows still moan,
And I write from a scarred soul my sad poetry.

      Yet from this pain something beautiful was to be,
The sorrow I keep within me is dreadful;
            And I write from a scarred soul my poetry,
These scars on my soul are beautiful and painful.

This is truly a beautiful poem! It's truly amazing that beautiful things can come out of our scars and brokenness. What is even more amazing to me is my life being made beautiful through the brokenness and scars of Jesus Christ. Your beautiful poem reminded me of this today.
