The Gift

 

Amidst the absolute wreckage

that surrounds her,

she stands, heart in hands.

 

Amidst the debris of

broken hearts,

broken minds,

broken vows,

she stands, heart in hands.

 

Amidst the dust-filled gloom

of another fading day,

she stands, serene,

smiling, heart in hands.

 

With hands outstretched toward me,

carrying the ultimate gift -

her new-found heart.

 

I hold out my hands,

accept the offering,

and weep silent tears of joy

at my supreme luck.
