my hope
my tears
my love

never shared
never cared
never fair
child's play

a trail of tears and hopes
fears and ropes
tying us down
never fair
only the hope
for equity
and a tender
merciful touch
of one's heart
to another
to share a love
imperfect yet essential
delightful yet painful
precious yet piercing

my love
that I may set aside
my tears
and wrap you in
my hope

to be shared
as we care
with affection
so fair
