Cradle into my arms

Young and innocent you are new to the world
Fresh to the earth dragged beneath my skin
We’ve shared tears, sweat, and blood
Tears fall like water
Sweat pours like rain
Blood flows like streams
Love has locked you in my hold
A restraint so strong that we’ve become one
Comfort my pains like they were your own
I’ve become anxious to hold you but I can’t feel
Unexpectedly you have abandoned me
You were alive and well in my imagination
I take a deep breath
Close my eyes and I see you there
When I open my eyes reality hits and
you never existed
