Covering Scars

After being hurt by a friend in the past, it becomes a lot more difficult to open up to the next friend who comes along. These wounds can never truly be removed, but they can be covered by love. The more a friend is fathful, the easier it becomes to open up again.

Covering Scars

I see the scars that tell the tale
Of ancient gashes running deep
Into your heart—
They speak of how a friendship failed,
They speak of all the tears you weep
This very day.

I can’t remove the ugly scars,
I can’t dismiss the tears you cry
From deep within—
But I will reach you where you are;
The healing needed I’ll supply
Through the power of love.
