To Be Weak

To be in love, is to be vulnerable 

You have to watch your back.

It is a sad, but true fact. 

His eyes will haunt you 

They are so sure.

That he will have a great life. 

But, will you be by his side?

 

To be vulnerable, is to be weak. 

When I look at you,

How can I speak?

I falter away

From your every touch 

I dream of you.

I dream of us.

 

To love you, I risk it all.

If I slip, you catch my fall.

Your touch gives me healing 

Your laugh makes my day.

I know you may not stay,

 I'm sure that I will be okay. 

To love you, I learn to love myself.
