red love heart christmas

.

When we hurt,

grief wants nothing more

than to light a candle

and sit with us

in our keening.

.

If we look it in the eye

we’ll see

its soft depth

as it holds us tenderly

to the flame.

.

And when we’re ready

we’ll hold it in return

and watch the spiral

of warm smoke

rise to the sky.
