Frayed edges of a ripped wound
Chest laid bare to the world
Haemorrhaging red river of agony
Bleeding from an unebbing soul
Cage of bones needing fortification
Protection for an exposed heart
Barricade all access
To broken, shattered pieces
Waiting for healing, for magic
Holding faith in Father Time
But then quietly you slipped by
Without ceremony nor grand gesture
Simple, soundless love and care
Attention, priority and presence
Gently stitching a patchwork
Creating this beautiful whole
