Tender is the storm-
That heals a wounded soul,
Painstaking is the task-
That makes a person whole.

Courageous is the heart-
That fights the sleeting rain,
To find that wounded soul-
And take away the pain.

Patient is the hand-
That soothes a worried brow,
Forgives of past mistakes-
Teaches only here and now.

Trust is the key-
To strong internal mending,
Tenderly Courageous, Patiently Trusting-
Unwavering, Unbending.

Lovely and tender words once again, devina.
Your work bespeaks a tranquil, crystal-clear
soul.  Always leaves me feeling peaceful.
Surely you ARE a healer.

Devina, this poem is inspiring, beautiful and perfect.  Thank you for writing this, maybe it's time I try to heal. I printed your poem out, so when I have bad days all I have to do is read it to lift me up. You have a great talent.

Take care,

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
