Stripes of a Healing Embrace

in these days of grit and grace

where care for the other is becoming commonplace

there are other scars that trace

their crooked lines upon the face

and time will not soon erase

these stripes of a healing embrace

(Written after arriving home from work suddenly noticing that I too now wear these stripes on my face)
