"...trembling at the touch / Each of the other..."

How it Hurts to Heal

My body is broken and yet I breathe
The pain reminds me how it hurts to heal
My mind is shattered and yet I believe
In what I lived and learned which I bequeath
To you in love now that you might receive
Me at my uttermost as we reveal
The brokenness which makes us who we are
(Shyly at first because it hurts so much)
I would be healed if you could be with me
Our healing comes through fitting from afar
Our jagged edges trembling at the touch
Each of the other to combine to be
The spark which gives birth to a double star
Where nothing lasts except eternity

A stunning capture of a love that must surely span the universe in it's breath and width. Well done Steve.
