Endangered Tenderness

There was within your wind
A force I could not win
Try I did
Right from the start
You won
I lost my heart

There was within my eyes
That something
I could not hide
In which you saw and felt
And so you smiled and said
“For me those blues just melt”

There was within your sun
A heat……
I could not deny
My shadows sped away
I took your warmth
Now I’m wrapped within your rays

There is within my mind
A fear that grows
Uncertainty sure to meet
A day will come
The sun will fade
And my shadows I will greet…

Artist's Description

I think life can be harsh to anyone with a tender skin. We’re taught to toughen up and keep our chins up. Why is that do you think? Shouldn’t life be lived along side the tender reeds of the world as well as the leather that has been stamped by living? I think there should be respect for both. Age doesn’t hold the final vote and it sure doesn’t have the character of mind necessary to demand that from everyone. I think there is nothing wrong with safeguarding the tender heart or softness your born with. If your someone who chooses to trample on tenderness that’s fine too, your just leaving a path for someone else who may find it an incredible treasure. I am keeping mine because life needs the reminder that tenderness was how we began…..
