then taking a deep breath, trying to relax and let go
of the hurt, the doubts, the worries.
Wiping her eyes, making the choice
to move forward.
Sometimes things can cut deeper,
hurt more than anyone else
The pain of the moment
almost too much to bear,
not feeling heard or understood.
She has to be allowed
to feel hurt, sad, even disappointed
when feelings knock her down.
She will rise and smile again.
If he reaches out a hand,
pulls her up and embraces her,
it is easier to stand back up.
Life isn’t always pretty.
Some days it takes all your strength
just to put one foot in front of the other.
But pain is part of life, of love
and the dark days
make the light ones shine all the brighter.
is worth fighting for.
No one said it would always be easy.
She will never give up
as long as there is hope.
They might not always see eye to eye,
but their hearts beat in unison
for each other.
