You Have a Beautiful, Big Heart

You Have a Beautiful, Big Heart

“these things happen, sweetheart.
and I know you don’t feel it
right now, but you’ll heal,
and get back out there.
your heart is just so big,
and you fall so fast
and completely
that your head takes a while
to catch up.
you are not broken,
though your heart may be.
and God made your heart beautiful
and big for a reason.
just be more careful,
and don’t let people
use the space
of your heart
as a canvas
for their own design.“

I hear her
and say thank you
with a choking sensation
in my throat

I cannot change
the size of my heart,
but I can choose
who I will let in
to help me paint.
