Courage ~ Poetry

What if I let my guard down
Let you in places no one has been
Give you the power to touch my soul
Going down a road it takes courage to go

Giving you the key to open up
Those things deep inside of me
Exhuming again what I’d rather not see

Sometimes the past is best left behind
Wanting to release what wasn’t kind
There seems to be a constant letting go

My heart aches for the connection we share
Somehow I have to find the strength to dare
Let you inside where I’ve felt the tears

So now to push through the fear
Showing you where the tender scars are
Opening up and trusting once again
With you my sweet & special friend

Maria Luisa
