What I Wish I Could Do...
by Sarah  L.

I HAND IT OVER TO YOU...
HOPING YOU WILL ACCEPT IT...
PRAYING TO GOD ALMIGHTY...
YOU WILL BE CAREFUL AND PROTECT IT...

I GENTLY PLACE IT IN YOUR HANDS...
AND YOU CURL YOUR FINGERS 'ROUND...
I TELL YOU, YOU NOW OWN IT...
IN ME, IT CANNOT BE FOUND...

YOU GRASP IT FIRMLY IN YOUR HAND...
AND GAZE INTO MY EYES...
YOU REALIZE THIS TREASURE...
AND THEN BEGIN TO CRY...

I AM WARMED AT THIS AND THANKFUL...
THAT YOU CAN REALLY KNOW...
THAT THIS THING IN YOUR HAND...
IS WHY I LOVE YOU SO...

A TEAR STREAKS UPON YOUR CHEEK...
AND I BEGIN TO KISS IT AWAY...
YOU BRUSH MY HAND ASIDE...
AND TELL ME WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY...

"I WILL CARRY THIS GIFT...
IN A GOLDEN CASE...
I WILL NEVER ALLOW...
ANOTHER TEAR TO STREAK YOUR FACE..."

I LOOK INTO YOU AND YOU INTO I...
I KNOW NOW THAT YOU DO NOT LIE...
I TRUST IN YOU...
I GAVE YOU THIS...
YOU PUT IT AWAY...
AND BLOW A KISS...

THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR...
THIS IS MY BRAND NEW START...
THIS GIFT I GIVE SO FREELY...
IS ONLY BUT MY HEART...
