My Heart Aches

My Heart Aches
and
I’m hanging it out to dry
.
.
As the snow falls outside and rests

Heavy on the evergreen branches,

.

 

I rest, too, heavy and troubled in
The warmth of my peaceful indoors.

Plucks sadly at my heartstrings

And plays a mournful tune.

My heart aches to soar

Above the clouds of sadness.

My feet long to trek

Green paths of creation’s gladness.

  1. I ache with yours❤

    • Thank you, Dorothy. This is a difficult time. She is in PA and I am in MT. Too much distance! I would love to be able to be there with her often – lending love and support. The good news is that her daughter and grandson are only 5 minutes away and they visit her often.

  2. Thank you, Dorothy. I will… and I know she will, too. ❤

  3. This touched my heart, really!

    • Oh yes, DeDe, please do!!! ❤ And remember, Sally does has not heard all of these diagnoses, so do not reveal this to her!

  5. So sorry about your sister
