A person with a broken heart holds a most beautiful promise in a powerful way to love and heal another. There is always a parting, just as there is a dying. There is an introspective overwhelming quite on each parting. The body of thoughts in grief are tendered through lamentations. A lingering sword of sorrow is in each life. There are no questions or rational to seek. Some things are not there to be understood. They are to be accepted as that which is beyond conventional wisdom and knowledge. It is perhaps the most courageous and compassionate person who goes into the heart of brokenness. Persons who have been lashed countless times hold the potential to be wounded healers. She/he will look through the window of life to glimpse into the soul of another who has been pierced by the lance of life. ‘A person with a broken heart holds a most beautiful promise in a powerful way to love and heal another’ These poems were composed as eloquent testimony of the deep mesmerizing love witnessed in parting or dying that cannot be imitated or replicated. Through such travesties and tragedies, what shines is illuminating love.
