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.
