Ointment

For my fellow bloggers who suffer pain from loss of friendship and the need for forgiveness (both given and received)...

There was a fire
In my heart,
Burning strong.
But the fire went out
Unexpectedly,
With a fierce blow.
I am left with a painful scar.
It continues to burn and hurt
But it produces no light or warmth.

How could I have failed so miserably?
Why didn’t I see it coming?
Why didn’t I try to stop it?

I don’t know how
To relight the embers.
I don’t know how
To heal the scar.
It continues to throb,
A painful reminder
Of the sparks of love
That once existed there.

Jesus,
Be the ointment
That heals this open wound.
Amen.
