I Belong to You

Love Blossoms

My hands are used

to hold you,

to wrap themselves

around you

and squeeze away

the pain.

My legs are used

to come to you

and step on

what ails you.

My eyes are used

to see the ache

in your irises,

to see the tears

falling from them

so I can wipe

them away.

My ears are used

to listen to you

when you need

to vent about

life’s frustrations.

But my heart...

my heart is to

be used as

you please

because it’s yours.

Inspired by: We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find.
