For the Broken Girl

I’ll hold your hand in mine to protect your heart
If you slip away, you’ll drift free like a child’s balloon, and
when you fall to the ground, your heart will be broken

and will shatter into a million pieces
Healed by time, your mended heart will grow back
with scars and cracks

The scars suppress memories of your pain,
cracks let hope seep in until your
heart once again fills with love

I’ll hold your hand in mine to protect your heart
If you slip away, you’ll drift free like a child’s balloon, and
I will spend a thousand years searching to find you again
