Challenged to weather life's latest storm
this heart has become faded and torn...
but she's still there.
And though she may carry imperfections
I adore every scar like well earned medals.
Lessons learned became her stepping stones
from every rock bottom that she's met...
and she has cherished every memory.
For her heartaches that she fondly keeps
have been the guide to a road of strength.
Every weeping moment of her past
taught her that sometimes life is pain...
but she could never be broken.
She lived and learned through tragedy
to appreciate all the life she's had.
