The donation of gratitude,

Shared gifts of passion.

Gratitude for life and love,

Wants and needs,

Souls and hearts,

Problems and happiness.

Gratitude for the way it is,

Not for the way I wish it to be.

Salt poured over wounds

Accentuates the pain.

A purposeful understanding of the

Void inside.

To fill with stone

Is to be empty no more.

But at what cost

the filling of stone?
