Handle The Heavy Things – Written Monday 2nd November 2015 (Aged 40)

Handle The Heavy Things

i see your happiness fumble
and sometimes,
tumble down the stairs –
of your self esteem
and i occasionally see pirates
board your dreams
i want you to be content –
with your contentment
i want you to feel sad –
when love,
bursting with pride
does not quite make the jump
and your heart beats –
with a heavy thump
i see your frustration –
putting down roots
and sometimes become too much
but we can handle the heavy things
with our joint touch

James Garratt – Monday 2nd November 2015
