Heart Custody

Fertile like no soil
For weeds and crops to sprout
So homely beyond comfort
A mother for the cursed and blessed
Absorber of all shock
Recipient of all that strikes

A scale for all troubles
Weighed heavy and light
A river that washes all pain
Down the ditch for forgiveness to prevail
A shelter of courage growth
So reliable like a thatch of grass
Incubating a Nursery bed

So beautiful like the Eden of creation
Where only love prevails
For all walks of life
A horizon of so many hills
Secret to me and the Lord
The only rainbow seen and felt
The lovely garden my heart

Oh! This is good. Well penned with insight to drive home the point. Keep it up and thanks for sharing. Another addition to my favourite. Please have a look at my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
