Words: 60

  My heart was
shattered into a thousand
jagged pieces;
picked them up,
melted and fired them
in your furnace of love
and gave it back to me
better than new,
sparkling with joy
like fine crystal in the sun.
I love you with my body
if you will have it,
my heart if you will trust it,
and my soul if you will keep it safe;
In your arms I am complete.

Thanks for the nice compliments and feedback. I wrote this for my husband on our 24th anniversary. Coincidentally, Fouad (his name) means "heart" in arabic, so I think it was especially meaningful for him. He liked it -- yay!
