Thank you for breaking my heart

Thank you for breaking my heart

For the depth of the pain ...
     which showed me how much I could feel
For sending me into the dark ...
     where I found my light
For the broken pieces ...
     which allowed more space for love

For the ocean of tears ...
     which washed away the unimportant
For the hot rage of anger ... 
     which helped me to set my boundaries
For the fear that took my breath away ... 
     and forced me to inhale my courage

For shattering my foundation ... 
     and giving me the chance to rebuild 
For bringing me to my knees ... 
     where I could see the helping hands of friends 
For the vulnerability of my weakness ... 
     which is intertwined with my strength 

For taking away the certainty of what I knew ... 
     which let me do what I never imagined I could 
For plunging me into the unknown ... 
     and for all I learned there
For the wrenching change in my path ... 
     and the unexpectedly places it's taken me

Thank you for breaking my heart ... 
     for I prayed for love 
     and I was given the opportunity to love
