Make it Easy

.

If I could make it

easier for you

to say hopeful

a little while longer,

give you the smile

from my face,

hold you in my arms

and let the world

just

disappear;

I would.

I can.

I will.

.

You don’t have to believe me.

God knows I’ve lied enough.

Disappointment has a taste

and I bet it’s one

that you know well.

.

Here’s my arm

and my shoulder.

I promise I’ll keep

my mouth closed,

parting my lips

only to kiss you.

.

Lay against me,

and I won’t say a word.

If I could make it easier

for you

to shed all of your burdens,

with your face into my neck,

I would move oceans.

.

Tell me everything.

I promise

that I will listen.

.
