Strength Just For Today (For Meg)
A heart is a muscle
It beats through fear
It flows through pain
I think I will be your heart—
just for today
This morning when you wake
take a sip from your favorite cup—
I will bring you fresh beats—carry away
pain. I will flutter my heartwings
like a happy angel, circulate
a healing wind
Today you can take a breather—
sit on the couch, pop the top off
something cool and light, knit purl
geese into pink, slip stitch hope into
a blanket. All
while those you love
love you back
(and do the dishes)
