If I Could

On the phone I hear the tiredness in your voice.
Tinged with sadness and pain, disappointment and fear.
And all i want is to be close to you.

I want you to walk into my house
so i can put my forehead to yours,
look deep into your eyes,
and read what your mouth has left unspoken,
then softly kiss you and wrap you in my arms.

Like a warm comforter, i want to hold you tight
and meld my body into yours to absorb your pain.

I want to hold your head in my hands
as you bury your face in my chest and cry.

I would offer you a bull-horn so you could
climb up onto my roof and
scream out your anger at the night that much louder.
When you were done you would come back to me,

I would dry your tears
and I would hold those hands that i love
Tracing the lines of your palm
and whispering words in your ear
to soothe your pain.

If i could...
