Your Heart Will Mend

© more by Raquel Franco

Published by Family Friend Poems December 2020 with permission of the Author.

Of this I am certain:
your heart is a tender
wound that will always heal,
wears grace like a grown,
finds warmth even when
it has frozen over
like a lake, grows roots
after crawling into cold
coffins. There is no break
your heart can’t come back
