To Be Held

To be held

As you would a flame

Through a windswept night

To be cradled

To be the light in your eyes

To be the reason you sing

To receive the gift of your surrender

Melt beneath my fingers

Swell upon my tongue

To wrap you around me

Wear you as armour

Breathe in the heat of you

Have you weep against my chest

When the world is too too much

To bear

What I would give

For that.
