Burden Bearer

She was the burden bearer, carrying the cares of all who entered into her circle.

They brought their fears, all their shattered hopes, their pains, their failures, their broken pieces, piling them at her feet in silent supplication.

Faithfully, she lifted each one… carrying the weight of their struggles safely in her being, giving strength and compassion to each one in return.

And every time a heart broke or a dream disintegrated, they would return to her… leaving the pains, taking the restoration she bestowed.

Always she gave the gift of wholeness and solace, taking their chaos, absorbing the sorrows… giving peace in return.

Until, one day, they brought their broken shards of being… and there was no one there.
