Love, love again

dust

I can’t hear you —
What’s that you said?
You’re feeling off today?
Come, on, rest your head.

My chest is your pillow,
My arms are an ark.
I’ll shelter you from cold rain
Guide you home in damp dark.

You’re scared, I don’t blame you —
Down is where you’ve been.
But you rose to the top,
Learned to love, love again.

You beat the odds,
Played on field uneven —
Love can take you down,
Or give you something to believe in.

I know it wasn’t easy.
Love is hard to trust.
It leaves you broken down,
Feeds you clouds of dust.

But dust settles, time passes;
You relinquish and restart.
Now let me be the one
To protect your wary heart.
