your hands

i am older now
older than i was then

back when you found me
back when you loved me

like no other
like some saviour

your gentle hands
caressing my scarred heart

bringing me back
back to life

from the depths of my misery
you pulled me out and showed me how to love

how to be loved
how to accept this gift

to allow my heart
to grow and bloom

to walk with you
unafraid, head held high

to give this gift of my heart
wholly offered to you

i have grown
and i have learned

many things from you
others from life itself

but in this time
in this moment

nothing has changed
you still hold my heart

please keep it safe
for it is forever yours
