Winter came and covered her heart,
then Sadness followed and broke what remained.
What once flowed easily
has become painful and confusing.
What once seemed honest
has left with no explanation.
Now alone, she feels a fool.
Trying to patch a tear
in the fabric of a lost moment.
Trying to mend her heart that feels broken.
Winter came and now she knows
to pick up the shattered pieces
that will never fit together again
and will never be understood.
Wiser, she now knows to protect
what was allowed to be vulnerable.
To draw it within and hold it secure.
Too precious to be shared.
