Touching Scars

Vacation 581

There was a time I could not even look

at her scars, her wounds, even though I loved her

a large one on her leg, several on her arms

and one even in her chest,

it was just too painful, and I looked away.

Fortunately we can hold each other now,

and talk about it, the pain is gone

and I can see more clearly

we have been healing

each other’s scars

for a very long time.
