time heals


two words

the rub of balm


have faith

time heals


no need

to do a thing


just wait

for time to heal


don’t let

doubts creep in


just wait

time heals


broken leg

or broken heart


the same

to time that heals


every time

it may not


but when it can

time will heal


We decided we might write to an optional prompt in November of 'healing'. Some of us did, some didn't. The phrase 'time heals' went around in my head for a couple of weeks and eventually presented itself as this poem.
