Gentle one lying in my arms
Your eyes and smile
Examples of sweet charms

How I wish that some way
I could shelter you from all harm

I long to cradle you
All your life
But if I truly love you
I cannot

I must stand by
My duty I must do
To watch you suffer
 Laugh and grow

Practice at kissing injuries
Offering advice and love

Whenever your spirit is low

I will make mistakes
Please understand that

With this journey, we undertake

Whatever happens, never forget
You are close to my heart

Carrie Lin R. Jones May 1997©
