Not Quite Ready

Can you hear my heart beat from there?

Tonight, with quiet surrounding me for the first time in a week, I can.

It’s hanging out here, still on my sleeve, tender and a little bit sore.

I’m surprised to find it there and even more to find myself not quite ready to tuck it back in my aching chest.

    Allowing yourself to be in this place takes courage, so much courage. And it will attract love in return. It just has to.

      I am so moved by the love in my life, even when it’s for just a moment, and even when it’s not perfect.
