Gotcha'
~Marge Tindal~

When you lay down at night
and sleep won't come because
I'm not there to hold you
When you've a secret
to tell and my ear
is the first you
whisper
it in
When
you gaze
into the night
wishing upon a star
for me to come true
When all pretense
falls away and you
share your tears
with me
When
you want
someone to
share your dreams
you reach for my hand
When friends fall
but
friendships
don't
you help me
to my feet
When you awaken
and want me
more
than that
first cup of coffee
gotcha'

This was really cute Marge!!!! Loved the suspense...I thought about adding some naughtiness to your poem ( not that it ever happened with one of mine!!)   but there's no way to corrupt this one...it seems innocently loving!!! (maybe next time huh???)

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...
