lay it all down, love

lay it all down, love. lay it all down.
lie here beside me and lay it all down,
i know you don’t want to let go just yet,
so keep hold or let go or let it be,
here,
now.
i feel how heavy it is,
how painful, how tiresome.
i see you as you fight to keep going,
to keep up,
to keep it all tightly in tact,
so keep hold, if you need to,
place a hand on top to be sure it’s still there,
hold it in place as you breathe out its weight
now here, in front of you
on the ground where you lay.
lay it all down.
i understand
how much exploration you still want to do,
how much you have yet to uncover,
how you cannot say goodbye for now, if ever.
still, i’m here.
i’m with you.
even if you cannot share it with me,
(and if you can),
i’m here.
lay it all down, love.
lay it all down next to me.
i’ll be here, next to you.
holding you without touching,
hearing you with no sound,
loving you with nothing in between,
just love.
right here, next to you.
sift through and sort out
or forget it all and leave it be,
speak all or say naught,
and i’ll still be here.
lay it all down, love. lay it all down.
