Tender Heart

My heart once pumping love
Forgets joy withdraws from all
Armouring and building a wall
No-one can enter anymore
The door under lock and key

A ray of light from the sun
Like a bolt penetrating 
The heart centre exploding
Shattering into tiny pieces
Gathering and recollecting

This journey needs to be taken
Each step burning with the rays
Dredging along clearing the path
Unfolding deep soul compassion
Bleeding heart becoming whole

Each piece re-joining tenderly
Energy of love a glue so strong
Holding, caressing, connecting
Eyes brighter with inner light
Heart reigning the mind at last
