Let us love

flowers

I will own my wounds

I will bind them up

I know now its not your place to heal them for me

But I also know that without love and compassion from outside

Without that empathy, understanding and tenderness

It is much harder for us to heal

We need each other’s love

So let us love

Let us give

Let us open

Let us trust

And let us let go of that which hurts

And of those who in hurting so much

Hurt us too

Let us remember

That they too were hurt

In ways too painful for them to remember

And that now they are lost

Even though they do not realise it

Only love

Will help us recognise the truth

That some people find it so hard

To find love for themselves in that hurting place
