Finding the strength to love again doesn't always mean your own strength.
Gentle Hands

I crawled into my broken heart
and set a "love alarm."
I would never place myself
again in the way of harm.

Sitting in the darkness,
the world I could ignore,
unaware that loneliness
would provide a door.

Somehow in my hiding place
you discovered me
and opened the door wide enough
to show me true beauty.

Your gentle words of caring
drew a portrait of the world
that held all my unspoken dreams
that around me swirled.

Your loving spirit led me
to a place where I could stand
and find the strength to love again
... strength from your gentle hands.
