"Giving Love Away"
by Beverly Walker
Fully awake, I am surrounded by broken dreams,
so painful and throbbing I long to re-enter my nightmares.
Past memories of a perfect love, shattered by lies, a suffocating reality leaves my
limbs numb, my body shaking.
The never ending flow of tears pour from my soul,
leaving my heart cracked and empty.
A dreaded future, too unbearable to comprehend,
shows no mercy, offering only more grief.
My womb so full of life, drinking up my love,
coming into a world of suffering and pain.
A small glimmer of sunlight touches my soul,
blending with my tears to form a promise!
Caring, loving, aching arms of strangers anticipating loves arrival.
When I see the rainbow of joy and hope in their eyes,
the gaping wound of
my heart will mend....to love again.
