#TenderTuesday . . . I’m often difficult to love.



“I’m often difficult to love.
I go through dark periods
like the moon and I hide
from myself.

But I promise I will kiss
your wounds when they’re

Even if they’re in your soul,
I can find them with the light
in my fingertips.

I will lead you to the river
so you can remember how
beautiful it feels to be moved
by something that is out
of your control.

And when our dark periods
match, we can breathe with
the grass and look at the
night sky.

The stars will remind us of
the beauty in our struggles
and we won’t feel lost.”
