Can I Give You This Part Of Me?

Can I give you this part of me
to be cared for tenderly?
Can I give you this part of me
to be nourished
and to be cherished?
Will you give this part of me the
love and understanding it so desires?
Will you encourage it to grow
from embers to burning fires?
Will you hold it close to you
In times of trouble and in need?
Will you care for it as if it
were you own?
Will you sooth it with a gentle tone?
Can I give to you this part
of me that expresses my love?
Can I give to you this part
that is my heart?
