Helped You Fly

I held your face and caught your tears..
On my fingertips they balanced and disappeared..
Swallowed your sadness with an open mouth..
Lifted grief away and showed what love is about..
Took a dream and gave you the starring role..
A place to run and play and feed your soul..
Now your free to dream your own..
Just remember me, your never alone..

    very lovely Mike, just a heads up it's rhyme tears/ disappeared .....mouth/about..role/soul..own/alone, this type of rhyme is called slip rhyme or half rhyme/ it could also be put as Couplet form which is a type of rhyme just change the form label please with sugar. Light & love

    A beautiful write, also a testimony of being proud of how a person has grown with your assistance and the joy of letting them go with the knowledge that you will always be a part of each other's lives.. Okay that's just me reading a little deeper than what you probably intended.. Awesome piece, love Wilma
