Mending a Broken Heart

In a drawer beside my bed I found this poem that a kind person had given me. It is oh, so true! We all suffer from a broken heart at some stage in our lives. I thought I would share this gem with you and hope it lifts your spirits as it does mine.

Mending a Broken Heart

If your heart is broken

do not wrap it in bandages

but leave it wide open to the weather.

Let the sun warm it;

Let the rain wash it;

and let the wind plant it

with seeds of new growth.


your poor broken heart

will grow a garden

of glorious flowers.

People will visit it;

birds will sing in it

and the wind will bear its seeds

to other broken hearts.
