Trembling Hearts

Cupped in my hands, against my breast,
A baby bird fell from it's nest.
Its' tiny body trembling there
With glistening eyes and fearful stare.
The heartbeat seemed to beat in time,
And twice as fast and loud as mine.
Its' first attempt at wing denied,
Now left my grasp at last to fly.
When at first you came to me
To hold your heart and comfort thee,
I felt that trembling close to you
Especially when our love was new,
Our breathing soft and interlaced,
Now cupped within my soft embrace.
