Make Love to my Sadness. {Poem}

sad heartbreak depressed

Grief rocks our world.

The universe aches

My heart does, too—

All the pain I cannot mend,

The wounds I cannot heal.

Across the world, tears flow

I cannot stop,

My empathy has no end.

And yet—

I can be grateful, still.


My arms reach out

and connect with peace—

Your skin, sweet warmth of hope,

your kisses whisper tribute.

We love, and as we do

my heartbeat echoes

three words of gratitude:

I am alive.

I am alive.

We are alive.
