Take My Hand


I crossed lines
and made mistakes,
waged war on a heart
much too good to break
And if I’m honest,
in my mind,
I knew one of these days
I’d push you away


But, here you stand
reaching out
to take my hand,
giving your all
to make sure I don’t fall
while the heat in your eyes
melts away this ice,
thawing hope
with promises that
these bonds of love will last
beyond all words,
beyond the past
