Let’s walk and talk, You said
and so we did
well, We walked, You talked
and you told me the truth
and i was overcome with fear, pain, gratitude
and my heart broke into a million tiny pieces.
That was the last time we walked together.
Our last trail.
I went back today, I was in the neighborhood
as I walked, I saw them
those tiny pieces had all taken root
my old heart, my old ideas of how things were and would be
they line that trail as tiny flowers, berries, ferns and trees
i couldn’t stop smiling, i couldn’t stop my feet from floating off the trail
and I felt another little mend
another stitch, another scar on my healing heart
i flew up that trail and sang to myself
i will heal this heart!
and it will grow!
and be more beautiful than i can imagine!
