Poem 1.

If my broken light

cast a small beam,

that dispelled your shadows.

I’ll be alright.


If my pain be the salve,

to your many wounds.

If my love be the binding,

If it be the healing,

If it be…


If my brokenness

Echoes your pain.

If it may somehow bring gain.

If my heart is one with yours,

If it be…


If my dreams

Give way to your wings,

If my hope brings you joy,

If my healing is your dreaming,

Let it be…


I will be broken.

My scars revealed,

I will open my fissures and cracks,

And let Love and light

Break through.

If it helps you see…

Our brokenness becomes our beauty.
