HOLD THE WORLD TOGETHER

I want to hold you
Tightly
If holding you helps
And kiss you hard
If kissing works
And say
Just the things
You need said
In just the way
You need them
So when
Your world
Seems torn apart
my arms
my lips
my words
Will stitch it up again
And I'll gather
All the parts of you
That now seem so far-flung
And compress them
Into one you
A you you can love
A you who will love me
And our love
Will hold the world together.
