Weary Soldier

Rest with me awhile tired warrior
I am weary, but I will take on your yoke
Your lips, frozen…blistering from the winters wrath crackle a sigh
Here…, here, hold my hands,
they are cold, but they’ll keep warm your soul
Take refuge by my side,
Rest your head on my shouders…
While I cradle your dreams with mine
I’ll ignite a fire with my touch
Make a dwelling place for us in my heart
Rest with me awhile weary soldier
While you gain strength to utter words again you’re fobidden
Soundless words which fill your lips with a stiffled moan
Come…, come, let me hold you…
Let me feel the broken spirit within…
My healing hands will hold you steady,
Fill you with life reborn.
I am within myself a spent shell…
Hollow sounds echoing back my feelings for you in silence.

Rest with me awhile brave one
Wretched dreams hold your mind captive in restless sleep
You’ve trekked a million miles to be here
Let me tend to your calloused soul
I’ll knead away the pain from your creased brow
Furrows that time itself cannot ease
Let my kisses be a balm on your forehead
a covenant of one treasured moment
Your eyes…, look, look at me…
Let mine be a well to drain your tears
A safe place to face your fears
Warrior of love with battle scars
Come rest your head on my shoulders awhile
Make my solitude your dwelling place tonite if only
Let me take you to a quiet place I know too well…
To grieve dreams that died a timeless death.
Where this heart of yours has been I’ll never know
I see the cobwebs on your mind…
tangled emotions of a tortured soul.
Your face…, your face I see when I’m not looking
(Searching for) memories etched in details on my mind
Where you’re heading I cannot go
But rest with me awhile weary soldier of love
Before you go where she’s waiting for you.
