Spiritual Gift of Love Heals Heart and Soul

A spiritual gift of love heals heart and soul,
It may take a long time or suddenly open
A heart closed to love, afraid to grow,
So many doubts born from past hurts
Leaves one without trust and hopes,
Without the knowledge they are worthy
Of being loved for who they are,
And to know there are no expectations,
Just understanding and sincere love,
Given honestly and wholly.

spiritual gift
Love is a spiritual gift of sunshine

Love can grow slowly from the first hint
There is something special about one
Who has touched a part of you that
Lay dormant for a long time,
A spark touched the dying embers
Of a heart once so open to love,
Slowly the embers gained warmth
To allow the fire of love to grow.
Like a seed fallen in fertile soil
It grows to a form of amazing beauty.

Such a spiritual gift of love can heal
The heart and soul of the loved
And the one who loves.
To be together would be a heaven
On Earth, a life of bliss and joy.
Even if not possible to be together,
Love is a powerful healer,
Always there to comfort the heart,
To bless the two souls with peace,
And maybe open a path not before seen.

To love is not to imprison or expect
Love in return. Love is to set free
The beloved, and open the heart to one’s
Highest truths, to enable one to
Find where their love is meant to be.
Be not afraid to open to the core of life,
Which is love in its highest glory.
Love is a spiritual gift of sunshine,
To light the dark corners
Of a heart that is opening.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
