Giving of ourselves


We give of ourselves

Each and every day

Tearing out sizeable pieces

Of own hearts

In order to patch

The wounded hearts

Of our friends

And by doing this routinely

Day after day

Our souls become

Entwined with theirs

For our own hearts

Have now become the pieces

Which bind and hold

Our friends together

And when the day comes

That they decide to leave

They take portions

Of our hearts with them

Leaving behind the remains

Of our once flourishing hearts

Which now anxiously wait

To be mended and cared for

By someone willing to do

What we have done ourselves
