Poetry Sunday ~ Broken Beauty

To the love of my life, as we embark on yet another journey of our lives! 

Broken Beauty
Take me as I am
broken beauty
a small token
forlorn duty.

Hold me
as I crumble
I will rise
newly humble.

Hear me weep
all my sighing
I am me
beauty dying.

Touch me
worthy crown
all my heart
falling down.

Lift me up
to the skies
as my world
slowly dies.

Find me
in the mire
peel me
from the fire.

Guide my soul
to the realm
where God alone
mans the helm.

He raises us up, though we be broken and fallen. Lovely poem, Joni! :)
