Time to Care

Hand in hand, we'll walk the wild
heart on heart, so tender, mild
a magic touch of hand on spine
loving beyond time…

In this night of great emotion
more than this mortal frame has ever known
with the pain as great as my love for you

and there you were
arms around me
keeping me alive
not letting me slip or fall
or end it all

For love of me
a love so free
you cried with me
the tears so long denied
the pain so long inside

The greater pain
not claiming yours or mine

How can it be
that one so fine as thee
would take the time
to care for me…?
