I’m sad
because I’m afraid
I’ve dreamed to big

Because I’m afraid
I’ve looked too far

I’m afraid I opened my heart too much
and spread my wings too wide
and the sunlight I caught in the morning dew
Is a burning midday sun
and the wind has fallen still

But as I hold still
I count the firm beats
of my fragile heart
and hold them out to you

For I know
You are always near
like two best friends
holding hands
in between seats
at the dinner table
and in the back car seat

I wait and I pray
for my faith to grow
and my weak hands made strong
and be held up
