Before you go and give your lovely heart away, hold it yourself.
Examine it gently.
Is it cracked here? Broken there?
Mend it tenderly. Bandage it with care. Give it rest.
Strengthen it with solitude.
Show it all the darkness it can hold, and assure it you are there to ease its fears.
Remind it you have been there since the beginning, and you will be there at the end.
Listen when it speaks. Its wisdom knows the way.
Love it. Honor it. Cherish it.
Allow it to fully be yours.
