Lean, love, lean on me
and rest your tired heart.
Let me rescue you out of a dream
and allow you to awaken in a world of choice.
Bend to me, as the willow to the wand,
as the lily grips the water to float.
I have time enough and arms
strong enough to grant you rest.
Lean on me, love, lean on me.
Press your tired mind onto mine
while we give to each other
what we sorely need.
It is only a breath of a moment
that separates us
and but a breath
that holds us apart.
Come, lean for now.
(this Valentine’s Day with much love, Veronica (( from
the upcoming Psalms of Love, ))
