My heart silently weeps
for things I can’t control
and injured along the way
It cries, quietly
letting no tears escape
with hope, for another day
My heart loves
even when bent and broken
knowing, there’s joy still to be had
It surprisingly leaps again
onto the roller coaster
understanding, that again, it will be sad
My heart sighs
with a knowingness
so many sorrows and stings it keeps
It loves openly
without regret or remorse
yet, still, my heart silently weeps

Beautifully said Leslie. Mine with you.
Your heart need not cry. It is the author of your writings, and their beauty makes so mays other hearts smile.
