Healing The Heart Scar

Healing The Heart Scar

by

Kathie Costos


It is time for you to realize

the pain is showing in your eyes.

It shouldn't come as a surprise

that you can't cover it up with lies.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?


Yesterday does not get to win

if you take the first step to begin

to share with me your fears and pain

and fight this together again.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?


I still see all that is good in you

and even though the things you do

to push me away

only make me more determined to stay.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?


No one can change what happened before

but the future is an open door.

Only you can change what you do

to take back your life from the ghosts following you.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?


You lived through something I may never understand

but I am still holding out my hand

waiting for you to take a chance with me

so that we can heal the pain that does not need to be.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?


Surviving should not be a thing to grieve

when "All things are possible to those who believe"

and you will not longer try to hide

all the pain you feel inside.


Your heart has a huge scar

but it doesn't change who you are.

They say the truth shall set you free

so why don't you talk to me?



*** Mark 9:23***


Last night my husband was watching an Eagles concert and when I heard "I Can't Tell You Why" I went to bed remembering what it was like for me when I recognized the pain in my husband's eyes, because I had the same pain in mine.

I wrote Healing The Heart Scar this morning because sometimes the people who love the one with PTSD, have no idea how to tell them what they want to. I know, because as much as I understood about PTSD, I had a hard time talking to my husband in the beginning. 

If you love someone, show them the poem. It will let them know you do not blame them and you love them enough to want to help them.

If you are the one suffering and don't know how to ask for help, then have them listen to the song from the Eagles. It will open the door to having a heart to heart talk. Most of the time they have no idea what is going on with you but they see the changes as much as they see the pain in your eyes.


Remember, it is your life...get in and drive it.

Eagles 1979 I Can't Tell You Why

Look at us baby, up all night
Tearing our love apart
Aren't we the same two people who live
Through years in the dark?
Ahh
Every time I try to walk away
Something makes me turn around and stay
And I can't tell you why
When we get crazy
It just ain't to right (try to keep you head little girl)
Girl I get lonely too
You don't have to worry
Just hold on tight (don't get caught in your little world)
Cause I love you
Nothing's wrong as far as I can see
We make it harder than it has to be
And I can't tell you why
No, baby, I can't tell you why
I can't tell you why
Every time I try to walk awayv Something makes me turn around and stay
And I can't tell you why
No, no, baby, I can't tell you why
I can't tell you why
I can't tell you why
