Healed Wings

A beautiful way of questioning
With pen and paper you empart
Although you think that you are broken
You have been gifted a perfect heart

Your spirit sheds its perfect diamonds 
We have each witnessed them in your tears
You have experienced so much loss
Today you are wise beyond your years

To come to know you is our pleasure
For you are a person who is real
You are still living life with purpose
Yet you still allow yourself to feel

Yes, one day you will have your comfort
What is broken will be fully healed
The pain will give way to joyfullness 
As the answers to you are revealed

Yesterday flows into tomorrow 
As life's river travels it full length
You were born to fly high above it
As you are lifted on wings of strength!


Inspired by and written for Broken Wings.

Oh, Richard, to read a poem of encouragement and love meant a lot to me this morning. I needed the words to help me forge on and continue. I know that there is purpose in what happens, but I hurt, LOL. Had an injury at the group home about 11 days ago. My old body is sore, not soar! I loved it although you wrote it for Broken Wings. Thanks, so much............7

Oh my gosh Richard, this is so beautiful and kind of you to pen a poem inspired by and written for me, I will treasure it forever and ever, you see beyond my words, you see that broken little girl who still dwells within, I think she is my muse, I could tell you so many things but slowly my poetry will reveal it all and I promise you I will soar on wings unbroken one day

On Sunday I am going to the cemetery with my sister to see the inscription of my baby at last engraved, the secret my parents hid from me, not adopted but dead and secretly buried , I will never know the why they could never tell me the truth
