-patient arms

by C.Dow

I know who you are and it really unsettles you.
Call me a liar but that's why you run away
from me and into the wind;
hoping that one day I'll be there to catch you
when you fall and take.

I can't make such a promise even though I fight
against the nights
that that's what I'll do
I can't make that promise because that very wind
is carrying me away
only because you won't let it carry Us.

Take those gloves off and step outside
to see the light of day.
You know me
and where to look.
I'm in your corner with strong arms
for your stronger heart.
Just don't let me use them to say goodbye.

That wind is blowing and your eyes
grow tired.
So stop running away from me
and away from Us.

You know me and where to look.
Step outside and see the light of day.
Let the wind soothe your hurt and
ease your course.

These arms are yours,
and they are patient.
Just don't let me use them to
say goodbye.
