Come home, heart.
Though you frighten me, I am ready for you to come out of hiding.
I now know you are good, tender, and strong.
I am secure enough to accept you, now.
In the past I have grievously abused you.
I mistook your softness, tore your sensitivity to shreds.
Of you, my heart, I ask forgiveness.
I have not held you well.
I did not appreciate the beauty you were offering to the world, to me.
I mistook your tilled ground for weakness instead of the power I now see.
I am hollow without you, good friend.
My heart and body will now unite and I will become one.
