Broken






Linking with Imaginary Gardens for The Tuesday Platform.  Take a look and join us!


[A] final comfort that is small, but not cold:  The heart is the only broken instrument that works.  ~T.E. Kalem




Some things when they fall they shatter and seem beyond repair
while others seem to brace the fall but invisibly they are impaired
a heart can see another's fall and then itself break in two
but tears like glistening diamonds will fall and make it new
God bless the heart that is broken for another's pain it has truly felt and seen
but God help the heart that will not break for it is surely broken indeed.

  1. Compassion is the best of gifts, and a burden that can break your back... yet the alternative is worse.

  5. A heart that doesn't feel is, indeed, broken... and can rarely be mended. This is a feast of wisdom.
