For Tea

Art by Ditte Løfgren

Revised March 2015:

You, who bear a burdened heart
In shadow’s silent shade
Withstanding winter’s cruelty
Battered heartbeats hibernate
A clutched heart of secrets
In loneliness confined
I felt it open in my hand
The hurt overflowing
Pouring out into the light

In the light the hidden cannot hide

Original:

You, who bear a heart of secrets;
I felt it open in my hand;
The hurt overflowing,
pouring out into the light.

In the light the hidden cannot hide
