Prayer to Aphrodite to Soothe a Broken Heart

Aphrodite, mistress of desire, holder of hearts,
who gives and takes the gift of love with even hand,
I pray to you, show kindness to this aching soul.
Beautiful one whose goodness and gentleness
are well known, ease this sorrow, lighten this heavy heart.
Your gifts are great, O goddess; their loss is a wound
that cuts us to the very core, a wound of spirit
so keenly felt–yet so willingly borne, for the risk
and the pain are well worth the reward–and still,
so great is this grief, only your sweet solace,
your mercy and your might, can comfort the afflicted.
Goddess, I pray to you for relief and renewal.
