Poem: Hearts Heal

The child appears whole,
doing the things 
that life requires
as he did before it happened.

But in the depths of his heart
he is torn 
and healing,
even as he breathes
and smiles and sleeps.

Do not let pain or fear
rule the day, 
little man.
Keep breathing,
one breath and then the next,
hearts heal, given time,
keep breathing.

If you will
I will.
