Most Beautiful Heart

One Day

A Young Man Was Standing In The Middle Of The Town

Proclaiming That He Had The Most Beautiful Heart

It Was Perfect

There Was Not A Mark Or A Flaw In It


An Old Man Appeared And Said

Your Heart Is Not Nearly As Beautiful As Mine

The Young Man Looked At The Old Man’s Heart

It Was Beating Strongly, But It Was Full Of Scars, Jagged Edges And Holes

He Laughed “You Must Be Joking”

He Said “Compare Your Heart With Mine”

Mine Is Perfect And Yours Is A Mess Of Scars And Tears.

“Yes,” Said The Old Man

Every Scar Represents A Person To Whom I Have Given My Love

I Tear Out A Piece Of My Heart And Give It To Them

And Often They Give Me A Piece Of Their Heart Which Fits Into The Empty Place In My Heart

But Because The Pieces Aren’t Exact

I Have Some Rough Edges, Which I Cherish

Because They Remind Me Of The Love We Shared

Sometimes I Have Given Pieces Of My Heart Away

And The Other Person Hasn’t Returned A Piece Of His Heart To Me

These Are Empty Gouges Giving Love, Is Taking A Chance

Although These Gouges Are Painful, They Stay Open

Reminding Me Of The Love I Have For These People Too

And Hope Someday They May Return And Fill The Space I Have Waiting

“So Now Do You See What True Beauty Is?”

What Is Your Heart Like?

Did You Protect It So Well That It Is Perfect Without Scars?

Have You Touched Someone’s Life Today?

Sometimes It Hurts But That Is When Life Counts!!
