You Fill My Bowl

My dearest love who makes me whole
Fills drafty places in my soul
Where grief and sorrow left a hole
Your loving ladle fills my bowl

Each loving touch removes a trace
of painful scars that mark a place
where hateful love seared every space
Sad, broken life and battered face

Your love a rare and precious pearl
New hope and joy we will unfurl
Forever blessed, my heart's a whirl
Transcends all pain poured on this girl
