Hold me pensively, like a secret between God and soul.
Practice me daily like a language that only you and nature know.
Keep me close like a childhood scar that you have accepted and now cherish.
Never let me go like the memory of each first time.
Clench me tight like hope in a protesters fist.
Clutch me in your grip like arthritis taking hold of an old man’s tired joints.
Transfix me in your forever like we both have the naivety to believe in an eternity.
Fasten me to your mind like a prayer or an affirmation.
You and I know.
Yes, Because you and I know that you’re the only one who knows the words to my song and who’s willing to sing every precious lyric.
