He carried her helpless body in his arms
Like a wilted rosebud, new in bloom with red petals
Scarred from the harsh winds and rain.
I will take you, kiss your bruised once smooth face
And your tired red lips.
Just you wrap your arms and legs around me and give me all weight
For I will carry you up the mountains from this valley of sadness
Just you close your tired eyes filled with heavy dew over your black lashes
And may you breathe in peace
While I take all your burden.
