Recently I was very touched by some simple words spoken to me: "We have tender hearts"...
I reflected on this and it resonated deeply for me as I consider myself to be someone who leads by the heart rather than the head; which can be both a blessing and a curse.
I'm learning to love my heart-lead life and all it's wonderful twists and turns and the magic it can bring. So I wrote this as an ode...to my 'Tender' heart.
My tender heart, it feels so much.
It fills and flows and leaps and jumps
It surges and pounds and aches and breaks
It determines decisions that I must make
My tender heart, my precious source
My sweet serenity, my deep remorse
It answers questions not yet asked
A house of truth, it wears no mask.
My tender heart, it beats and bleeds
To satisfy the soul it feeds
It loves so much, I’m sure it’ll burst:
An overflowing cup, to quench infinite thirst.
My tender heart I give you peace
On days when hurt appears not to cease.
I offer you strength, a place of calm
A gentle wisdom, amid the storm.
My tender heart, please speak your truth
Your knowledge from within the ego’s sheath.
I’ll offer you sweetly with trust and grace;
So that I may know eternal solace.
