To Wrap You in Red

I long to
Wrap you in red

To drape the
Jagged fragments
Of your pain in
Scarlet folds of love,

And gather wounded days
In love’s embrace

As crimson’s plush
Absorbs the tears
And time ticks by

To swathe you close
Against life’s chill
And heal your
Broken heart

Yet only tender Mercy’s blood
Spilled hard
Across the soul
Can enfold the
Broken shards

Of you
In Him

And make you whole.

*The cry of my heart for my beautiful friends Deb, Sandy, and Pamela, whose lives breathe Jesus, but whose hearts are heavy with loss, grief and illness. Just know that I love you and I’m holding you close in prayer, sweet friends.
