As You Are

sw
When you speak to me
about your pain
I wanna take it out
of you,
kiss you gently
on your golden skin,
heal those wounds,
push life back
into you,
hold you,
love you,
let you know
your safe
and let you know
you needn’t fear
cos you’ll never feel
such grief again,
your ex-lover caught
a bullet in his neck and
you were left alone in
tears and carried on
in stress
though I can never
bring back
the life you
once had
I can do my best to
make you feel
as precious
as you are.
