parts of my heart go missing
because they are needed somewhere else
you keep on trying. again and again. until you’re too tired to carry on.
that was a beautiful moment.
that friend, whose parents are mad but won’t tell him why.
that friend, who just broke up and whose heart doesn’t know what to do now.
that friend, who faced his inner demons bravely – only to realize that the journey had only just begun.
that friend, who is expecting his first child and sometimes is a little scared.
that friend, whose father died unexpectedly.
that friend, who’s recovering from illness and has to learn that things are different now.
that friend, who’s following her dream but struggles to make a living from it.
all of us, facing life each day, drinking the cup it’s handing to us.
thank you M. for the dandelion picture
Today I had the rare chance to meet someone and catch a glimpse of their heart.
I was shocked by its vulnerability. So full of hope. So full of fear.
Just like mine.
If only we all had transparent bodies so we could see each others hearts more often.
Oh, the possibilities…
