Little Heart inside my chest.

Little heart inside my chest,

I am sorry I haven’t given you my best.

Somethings move you forward,

and somethings hold you back.

What is it that made falter?

Would you please not look back?

Does your soul need stiches?

I am sorry It feels like you can’t fix this.

Can I hold you close to let you know,

that you are not alone.

Sweet little heart, such a fragile stone.

I’ll admit, I left you to fight on your own.

Did I say I’m sorry yet,

because I feel a lot of regret.

I let your wounds go unhealed,

re-opening them on another field.

Oh, Little heart inside my chest

I’m changing you for the best.

Hi, I am R.D. Jess. I am a christian writer and postpartum doula. My relationship with my God is not a religion but a state of who I am. I love being there for others and find that writing the hard truth is the best way to make people feel less alone.
