It seems
It seems fate...fate has decided
That I am to be
The healer of others broken
By the pain of rejected love
The one they come to
When their heart is
A puzzle on the floor
The one whose strength
They draw on
Whose shoulder they
Cry on
Til they are strong
Enough to fly

But tell me

Who heals the healer?

Who heals the healer
When its her heart
Blown to pieces by
Newly strong wings?

Who heals the healer?

Who heals the healer
When the sun cant
Find rainbows in the
Tears she cries?

Who heals the healer?

Who heals the healer
When she can no longer
Find herself
In her own heart?

Who heals the healer?

Can you tell me?

Who heals the healer
When the sun cant
Find rainbows in the
Tears she cries?

Who heals the healer?
=================

sincere and honest question of the heart Paula ...
I guess it comes down to believing in yourself and even fate...
but I truly understand...sometimes we just get so tired of being patient and strong ...
emotional poem me girlie... well expressed
take care

No one ever told me ... I could get lost while standing still ...
and sorrow doesnt make a sound ... as it takes away all your will.

Oh, Paula, love~
It pains me to know that you don't feel others reciprocate the reaching out that you do.

Sometimes we seem so strong that we convince others that we are.
But, you know what ???
It it just might surprise you if you took off the Super Woman cape ...

Believe me, THIS very capable lady used to think I could fight the dragons alone -
fortunately, for me ... others showed me they would be there for me when I couldn't fight alone.

I have learned to slow down long enough to receive - as well as to give -
in other words, I retired my Super Woman cape.
*Hugs* to you, my friend.

Paula my dear if you can wait
time heals the healer, time and fate
then all your desires will satiate
if you can just sit and wait,

but until time's done the healing
these emotions you are feeling
the tears you cry with heart congealing
you bring to me, I'll help their sealing.

Paula anytime you need to talk email me or anyone else you feel comfortable with ok. That's for friends are for.

Be well
Kethry

When the healer needs healing, helping hands will hold....

then the healer's healing will come from bathing in gold...

paula..wow, can i relate to this one...

they come..because you know the answers--even if you dont know where the answers came from..they come because you hold their hearts gently--when someone else has thrown it to the ground..they come because they remember when you 'healed' them the last time..they remember you as a strong individual, they see you as a rock, and answer book..you know things..    so they come...

one day you will find YOUR healer...    i believe its true..i found mine..he smiles..and the world turns bright..he laughs, and i forget all my troubles..he tells me he loves me..and its all good...unfortunately, he's far away now..so i have to keep up with my memories, til i get to see him again!  but he's my healer..my angel    

you find your angel, friend..AND..in the meantime..dont think you have to be the only rock in the pond...let your friends know they need to be there for you too...  

very wonderful write to sift your soul  
hugs, g

Paula, this one really hits for me. . . I've always asked this question. . . it's hard for empaths sometimes. . . we give and we give. . . but who gives to us?  

The answer?  We do. . . we give, and in the giving, we get back. . . not just what we give. . . but so much more. . .

Excellent poem, and I hope that this helps. . . e-mail me if you'd like to talk more about it. . .

"Who Heals The Healers"  - Passion's poets

Here hope this heals a little  

Blue skies fill with clouds
You're all alone away from the crowds
Now the rains begin to fall
But then a friend gives you a call

A rainbow leads right to my door
You can follow it for smiles and more
And sing sweet songs while the rains dry
Changing any tears to a happy cry
