be gentle (on gentleness)

. be gentle .

be gentle with your heart, lovey

she whispers in my ear

how does she always find me

with the words I most need to hear

for a moment I pause


catch my breath

push a strand of hair lovingly

behind my ear

and remember

she’s always with me


right ❤ here.
