Safe with Me



Hidden are the tides that roll
in depths of endless sea.
The moon confides where currents go--
a secret safe with me.

Shyly, there, a blossom blooms,
unfolding from her leaves.
Savoring her light perfume,
her secret’s safe with me.

Carried on the wind, are songs,
confessions of the spring.
The bashful birds must sing along,
their secrets-- safe with me.

Subtly the first star hints
what wonders she may be.
Falling for a heart below,
the secret’s safe with me.

Barely on your lips, a word,
unwittingly set free.
The easiest of those to keep,
your secret’s safe with me.
