Okay, this poem is kind of…weird?? I guess lol. But I was just thinking about how when you fall in love with someone and they love you back it's like they place their love/ their life in your hands and say "I trust you with this."

What a responsibility that is!

In My Hands by writerforever

I see you

I feel you

I long for you

You say you long for me too

----------

I'm afraid

Afraid of taking a chance

Afraid of giving you my all

Afraid of disappointing you

Afraid of getting hurt

Afraid of loving you

---------

I had always dreamed this day would come

When I'd hear you say "I love you."

But now I'm terrified

I feel the great responsibility of love

I feel your heart being placed in my undeserving hands

And I'm afraid

---------

I'm afraid of hurting you

I'm afraid of kissing you

I'm afraid of loving you

---------

In my hands your heart lies

So delicate

So trusting

What if I falter?

What if I fail you?

What if I crush your heart within my hands?

What if….?

-----------

In my hands your heart lies

In my hands lies your very being

You have placed it in my hands

You have said, "I love you and I trust you."

----------

These hands of mine are so undeserving

These hands of mine may falter

These hands of mine may fail you

---------

But darling this I can promise you

These hands will always love you
