Heart Whisperer

Gentle caresses
Supportive words
And calming voice
Patience and compassion
Toward a heart
Afraid to believe
Afraid to trust
Once a proud
And romantic soul
Broken and Battered
A dreamer
Jaded and scarred
Now skittish and scared
Guarded defenses up
A soft step
And gentle pace
Gingerly taken
The dance begins
A gentle hand                                                                                                  
And kind heart
Soothing a ravaged soul
Healing balm
On untended wounds
Promise the rebirth
Of a wounded spirit
To run
To fly
To soar
To be free…
