Fragile

Lifting your gentle body
Letting it relax against mine
Something once so strong and perfect and beautiful
Coming to rest weakly against my heart
You held me together in the palms of your hands once
Held me and beheld me
In my tiny little flesh
And now I gaze
Upon your imperfect perfection
Holding you close
Wanting to heal you
Waiting for the day
When you will hold me
Again
