When Does a Heart Heal

When does a heart heal?
When do the scars fade?
This iced over heart, has begun to melt

in the worst possible time.
When does a heart heal?
When does the pain go away?
Will I ever forget the face

the wrong face-- starting back at me?
A mother
A wife
Stolen from a brother

in the worst sort of way.
When does a heart heal?
When can I finally go to sleep

and dream without the face of an innocent haunting me?
When does a heart heal

The scars fade,

And the sweet smile of forgiveness bloom on the face of a child?
When it does

I won’t even deserve it.
