Both Hands


The care that is due

Bears the repeating

For heartbreak new

Love defeating

Will hollow out the man


The hope remains true

Hands of a sweet thing

See the heart through

Love ne’er fleeting

Lift it and help it stand


If you can see to

Its care and feeding

Promised to you

No more needing

Much love returned is planned


I give it to you

Bloody and beating

This love so blue

Still retreating

Please hold it with both hands

    How could anyone not care for the heart you so willingly hand over? A bubble wrapped protection kind of love…

    Beautiful, as always, Brad! ❤
