will you take the good with the bad?

Just once I want to lie on your bosom and cry,

As you feel my pain and tell me everything will be alright.

Don't ask about the things I have done just understand,

Wipe away my tears with the gentle touch of your hand.

At night when I wake screaming, punching and kicking in my sleep,

Don't lose respect for me if I break down and start to weep.

I know I am your oak and you only see my strength,

But know this I never want you further than my arm's length.

On the better days let me get lost in the happiness of your smile,

Dancing to nature's song in your arms this will make it all worthwhile.

Free from the pain and only knowing the true beauty that is you,

As we watch the sun fade into a sky of orange and blue hue.

Then back to the house were candle light will dance,

Capture me in your eyes let me fall into a trance.

Take me all of me and let me worship your beautiful curves,

And for the rest of your life let me give you all you deserve.
