A Loving Touch

Soft words, soft hands
brushing back your loose hair strands.
Loving kisses to say goodnight
two strong arms when things aren't right.
Wiping away your tears of pain
not restraining you like a ball and chain.
Three simple words can be used for bad
"because I love you, you must do that."
Three simple words for love so true,
"because I love you, I'll help you make it through."
Love is not controlling, not a screaming fight.
Love is a reassuring whisper in the dead of night.
