Vivre

It shouldn’t be this hard
to keep an open heart
The earth slips out under you
and you’re floating weightless

Simple gestures of affection
A pursuit without aim
Lay your hand in mine
Eyes forward, trusting

Say it with your eyes
I’m always watching
Keeping time with our feet
Imagining the music

If it should be, let it
Embrace every second
What counts is that you’re here
Slowly becoming a part of me
