The Healing Depth of Love

It’s time for Fandango’s Flashback Friday again! However, I’m posting an old poem that I have not posted before, so as to not be repetitive. 🙂 This was untitled in the original notebook; it took me a little while to come up with a title for this post. Also, this post has helped me complete the mission for JusJoJan day 21. 😀


Sustain the weary with a word:
Allow their pain to now be heard,
To usher in a note of peace,
Like the song of a little bird.

Sustain the sad with present care:
Fear not a silent space to share.
For in the quiet, hearts can fill
With depth of friendship that is rare.

  1. Beautiful!

    This kind of reminds me of Emily Dickinson:
    “After great pain, a formal feeling comes –
    The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –
    The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’
    And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?”
