Safe keeping

Give to me your scars and fears
Rest them soft within my hands
There is nothing you could do
That I cannot understand

Give to me your trials and pain
A child waiting to be born
Must be sheltered by such love
And to this I have here sworn

All your precious memories
All the wounds that you would heal
I will take the cuts within
Your fresh beauty to reveal

Your safe-keeping in my hands
In my sacred trust your soul
Let me be your hovering angel
As you heal until you’re whole

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
