Let me be

By: Lesley D Jones

once I am with you
will you care if
I never let you go?

let my shoulder be
the one you lay your head on,
when you need to be held.

let my hand be the one you grasp
in any time of heartache,
trouble, or joy.

sometimes it's so hard
to explain the depth
of this love.

please, allow me the time
to tell you
all you mean to me.
