Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

#RomanticTuesday: Grateful


“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.” 
― Haruki MurakamiNorwegian Wood


We had to open ourselves to the possibility

Love cannot enter a closed heart

So we opened our hearts, cautiously

I am so very thankful we did so

What unfolded from this act of trust

Is nothing short of a miracle

Neither of us are who we were before

We are completely ourselves in the presence of the other

Given the space to let go and grow

And love continues to spread in its growth

With every day, we are that much more grateful

  1. This is lovely Brother! We do indeed need to open ourselves up to receive the good things in life, especially love! ❤

  2. It is amazing what love can do and how it spreads more and more. I think love simply happens and you cannot even help it but to let it happen. Thank you for such a beautiful poem on this Tuesday ☺

  3. A quote from one of my favourite books and wonderful words to follow.
