i cried to you, my heart laid bare
and you stepped close and held me there
for moments there i couldn’t speak
no words would come; my voice was weak
when finally i could meet your eyes
i searched them but saw no surprise
just love like none i’d ever felt
so deep i thought my soul would melt
your soft expression seemed to say
my child, give me your thoughts today
i smoothed my hair with trembling hand
inept to help you understand
the ache within, not even i
could word the pain or quell the why
of being left outside alone
to face the darkness on my own
but as i pondered all these things
it brushed me like a monarch’s wings
the kindness in your gentle look
as though you wrote me in your book
and somehow even scared i knew
it’s safe to give my heart to you
