Continuing the marriage between poetry and art, today I have another selection of Catherine E. Case’s amazing work…accompanied by a poetry selection from my upcoming book, Returning – a woman’s midlife journey to herself.
To Try Love Again
Be willing to have your heart broken by love.
Be courageous enough to love knowing:
You will be imperfect in it.
You will trip
And you will fall.
You will disappoint
And be disappointed.
He will break your heart
And you will break his
And together, find healing through forgiveness.
For what other reason could you be here than to love and to know love in
And only those with a courageous heart—one that’s been broken a million
Are daring enough
