The Gift

The Gift

A Poem by sonnie ibadah

"I will cherish it forever..."
She whisperes softly as her beautiful face glistenes with tears.
Her lips spreading into the tiniest smile as
she looks down at the gift he has placed in her hands...
A million little pieces of her broken heart.

But all is not without hope. Sometimes we find someone willing to invest the time and provide the healing touches that repair our wounds. Sometimes we are able and privileged enough to do that for others. Sometimes we find our missing part in someone else and are, at last, able to fill that empty place inside. Sometimes we find a soulmate that completes us. It's not always. Life is not a fairy-tale. But, sometimes.
