Once I Was Able to Love

once
everything was lost
I’ve offered everything
now
the long forgotten
might return

was
I able to love
more than myself
seems
an obvious answer
am I honest

who
is sending the signs
I can pretend but I’m
blind
no-one knew it
just my heart

an inner stone
seemed to be alive
me
being in a sea
are you my destination
still

Discovering What Has Been Lost

Discovering

after such a long time

which can be a day

or more by thousand times

 

What has been lost

the Truth inside me

covered in shock

rage and hatred

 

New earthquake in my heart

needed to happen

dirt had piled up

time has come to shovel

 

I was dwelling in a frozen fragment of time

trying not to feel

although my eyes were open wide

I was hiding behind a veil

 

Just not to feel as much

not to be hurt again

not to hurt others

just be me in peace

 

Heaven called me early in my life

and I’ve made my promises

in exchange for my

and my children’s life

 

I had become broken

it’s hard to admit it

for someone

who always wants to fix it

 

Though, I had never stopped

I wasn’t full

I had become a broken wheel

hard to move

 

Only for others

not to care for myself

that was the only way

I was able to accept

 

Now I have to love

myself again

this way to be healed

and be able to heal

 

Discovering

what has been lost

reinventing

to reach even more

Have you ever been broken?

Have you ever been broken
Have you ever felt the fear
Have you ever become lonely
in a sudden, unexpected way

Have you ever been shaken
Have you ever felt betrayed
Have you ever become bitter
in a sudden, unexpected way

Have you ever been non-existent
Have you ever felt worthless
Have you ever become a silent scream
in a sudden, unexpected way

Have you ever been lost
Have you ever felt mislead
Have you ever become a runaway
in a sudden, unexpected way

I wish I had the strength
to pray

Who told you, little bird

Who told you, little bird
to come and see me at lunch
Who told you, little bird
I’ll be here no matter what
Who told you, little bird
to stand onto that branch
Who told you, little bird
this place is holy and blessed
Who told you, little bird
to sing a song from God
Who told you, little bird
you’ll dry my tears and cheer me up
Who told you, little bird
to comfort my aching heart
Who told you, little bird
I’ll be crying for love

Nothing is broken in you

nothing is broken in you
nothing has ever been
nothing is wrong with you
nothing has ever been

whenever you feel
incapable
inadequate
or just simply not enough

all the issues
accumulated
impossible
to overcome

it’s not your fault
it has never been
you are still worthy
you are still unique

the ability to love
in an unprecedented way
is only in you
is only in you

the compassion and care
even when you are down
is spark given from God
you are partly like Him

when you are down
release the anger
let go of pain
and resentment

you won’t be empty
light will shine
through the clouds
of dissolving past

new life will grow
in the burnt
and barren land
of your heart

nothing is broken in you
nothing is wrong
nothing is impossible
nothing is like was before

when you realize
how greatly appreciated and loved
by the whole Universe
and God

Forgiveness of injuries

“Then Peter went up to him and said, ‘Lord, how often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven times?’

Jesus answered, ‘Not seven, I tell you, but seventy-seven times.’

 

Matthew 18:21-22
