i took love in the palm of my hands and held it there

for minutes

for days

for months

i held it there for you

saw a light in your eyes that no other could show me

took that love and held your hand with it

i gave you love that was higher than any mountain top

i gave you


gave you


gave you

this love

i held so lightly in my hand

sure not to hurt this love

because if i did it’ll only hurt you

til one day love fell out of touch

out of place

we fell from the earth into a universe of confusion

all the while this love was in the palm of my hand

crying to me

crying was me

i didnt know love felt that way

it does


i took your hand and gave you all that love that i held onto for so long

i gave you that love back

too good for me

for us
