A to Z…

These are the words that were not heard
A child in the darkness;
Fragmented thoughts and torn emotion
Rent from a fragile heart.

These are the words I dared not speak
For innocence betrayed
And murdered illusions
Grief gathered silence.

These are the words that were not read,
Seeking the comfort
Of romantic dreams,
Eternally hopeful.

These are the words that broke my heart,
Over and over
Life teaching lessons
In grief and folly.

These are the words I choose to pen,
Opening my heart
To joy and wonder,
Chosen reality.

These are the words my heart now sings,
Life, love and laughter,
Conscious choices
Born of the journey.
