Safe To Open

Life goes on around my heart

Like standing still at rush hour

Holding ground and pulled in close

Aware of the urgent now

Wind whipped hair, closed eyes

I hear the hurry

I remember where home is

Covered from the flurry

A day reminds of what could be

Of what is lost and broken

Memories flood contained

The mask hides unspoken

Life untethered leads at risk

I mind the wise direction

Lovely bloom in sidewalk crack

Smile in imperfection

Winter bare strips life

Revealing all that stands

Fleeting happiness gone

Abiding on Holy land

Trusting in gifts received

Treasures kept in Heaven

I’ve been named by Adonai

Heart safe to open.
