WITH.ALL.HER.HEART

With all her heart she prays

Filling cups with tears

Writing letters unknown

Spilling heartache on the pages

Of crystal white paper trees.

God listens carefully

Extracting knowledge and notes

Good intentions and quotes

Benign and malicious tones

Pondering: what to do next?

She saves her last breath

For a sigh set free

The weight of worlds shouldered

Teetering with a small breeze

And like that, the angels fall on their knees.

The dream of a good life

Is all to real

Because we heed the appeal

To take care of each other

And heal.
