Undiscovered Places

There are undiscovered places in your heart, 

Caverns and cracks and crevices 

That you never knew existed, 

Until the day you loved your own child. 

And then the world opened 

And the pride, the joy, the love and grief 

Flooded your heart to fill those empty spaces. 

                                                - Janet Marshall Ewing
