Carry Me Gently

Quiet the beating, damn the longing
Carry me gently past winter’s mourning
Hold me close, remind me of when
A walk through the rain
And a fire within
For a delicate moment
Look deep into my eyes
My love for you
Disguised and blue
So that…
So that…winds might
Bring forth another day of promise
Riches and grandeur in an echo
Of that distant walk and guarded talk
What did you say that day?
To undertake a complicated risk
Sealed with a kiss
At the corner of lust and regret
Let me not forget
Let me carry forever the moment
And those which followed
Shadows aching to be seen
Acknowledge me…your heart said to mine
Can you feel me?
Have I ceased to exist?
Awaken me from an ancient sleep
Years upon years to a sorrow deep
In the eyes of another, I’ve disappeared
No longer relevant, no longer here
Be not hushed the tear
Secure within a dear autumn
You said…
“You see me
And all that I am
My beauty, my fragility
I am safe at last
Unafraid in your arms
Unable to stay
I return to the fear that drives me
To and from you
Time and again
Thank you for your love, my friend
Do not take this from me
It is all I have meeting forgotten needs
Hold me still when we are apart
Carry me gently, so frail my heart
I have loved you from the start
And yet….it took so long
To summon the valor
To take a walk with you that day”
In shades red and grey today
I carry gently this legacy
Endowed to one and unto lest two
Camouflaged in eyes blue
I will always
Always see you…
