Vulnerable

I poured out my heart
I wanted to share
You were not prepared
You just stood and stared

I felt so naked
A little bit lost
Being vulnerable
Would I pay the cost

You took a moment
Then I saw why
You were all choked up
You started to cry

You came and hugged me
Looked into my eyes
The love I wanted
Was then realized

By taking a chance
I let you see me
No more pretending
We both could be free

Many years passing
Drinking from loves well
True lover's magic
Is not just a spell

Vulnerable made strong
When hearts beat as one
Worth taking a chance
To bask in your Sun

Dedicated to my Sweetie who is my Sun, Moon and Stars.

    Vulnerability is part of the human condition. Having someone to see you through life's struggles and hold your hand - is a gift from God. I'm sure she would love to read this!

    Absolutely! I like the cap, you look like a longshoreman.
