bring forth a flower

My friend was going through the worst of times and I was so worried about her. Then, right in the middle of it, a postcard arrived with a beautiful, love-filled message from her on one side and this poem on the other. Someone wise once told me that if you mine the deepest, darkest shadows, beneath them are flowers to bring forth. And that sorrow can be a doorway to grace. It's taken a lifetime, but I'm finally beginning to understand.
