Rebuilding a life
from bare ground
is a delicate task

So many pieces
of a different jigsaw
to put in place
at an extended pace

Some things come easy
material articles
replaced by donations
a new home
can be created

Ongoing generosity
kindness and more
help to stitch up
the wounds

But the heart
is a great challenge
all in pieces
spread on the floor

Patience counts
waiting for resurrection
and redemption
long awaited for

Caring more yourself
loving your family and friends
draws the pieces in
to mend a broken heart!
