Sadie’s Pieces

Sadie was afraid

She would die not knowing

How it felt

To be put back together again

Pieces had been falling

Off of her for years

What Sadie didn’t know

Was that angels had always been around her

To catch every piece in their sweet hands

And to wait for the time when Sadie

Would be ready

To feel like herself again

Dear One,

Wake up knowing

That grace always comes with night

Know that the parts of yourself

You have been missing

Can be given back to you

Any day you are ready to feel alright

Please always remember—-

Shed your tears as you go to bed

Then know that in the morning

You can wake up whole again.
