The little girl looked at her father

and asked him why she bled after collecting

a fresh cut from a sliver of paper. ‘Some people

like to think that it’s to remind us that our hearts

are still beating. I think it’s to remind us that

we can heal and become whole again.’

  3. I loved your poem. It was so beautiful. It sounds like the sort of conversation I’d have with my daughter. She’d always asking why and difficult questions.
