Essence of Grief

January 3, 2009

I have a heart of forgiveness
I have learned this harsh lesson
Through tearful surrender
Through joyful animosity
Through cherished revenge

I have a heart of charity
Giving until it hurts
Then giving some more
Masochistic longings
To heal all but me

I have a heart for grieving
For grieving my losses
And the losses of all others
Taking away their pain
In forgiveness, charity, grief
