everything you've touched

it's okay
when your eyes are breaking
it's okay to let go of a tear
because we have all 
had moments 
of confusion and fear

there's something warm
about sitting 'round the fire with you,
sharing all the hard things
and how we muddled through
boy it sure feels better
to know you've been there, too
So don't be ashamed
by where you are, 
because I know exactly Who you are
and I see something beautiful,
(though the ashes try to bury you)
               I see something 
No Matter What You Do.

lift your head
and hold a hand
believe that you are beautiful
that everything 
you've touched
remembers you


  1. Dear Gardenia Girl,
    I found your poem posts and though - there is beauty and depth here just as in this poem that makes me feel good about the world. Thank you for sharing your words.

  2. Thanks for the follow, and the comment. That is all I could ever hope for in any poem I could ever write. I will check out your blog as well!
