If we forget…


If we forget
how to mourn
from the heart
we will soon forget
how to love
from the heart
and hope
will begin to shrink
at the terrors
of the night.

  1. I ask God to let me be wounded with those who are, if it could somehow (God’s way) spread out the pain. Then I start really crying hard and my chest hurts and I feel so much sadness and love at the same time. My little daughter stares at me, but it is not unkind, and in her own way she understands this principle of compassion of which she is a part. No, I don’t need to hide my feelings to protect my kids, or anyone, and I think this is the kind of heart you are talking about: the one that we must lay bare.
