Burden of Me

you are the forsaken one
holding such power
the only one to embrace me
effecting my happiness or demise
to be right inside my emotions
of the days going by

when you are attentive
thoughtful and witty
my spirits are lifted
illuminating my ways
building within confidence
competence and hope

when you are distant
secretive and obscure
you will find me bitter
angry, weeping and

i am a product of your longing
as my mind and spirit
wrap around yours
i am a delicate being
please be mindful
in this burden that you bare
