only just

i want to hold you
touch your hair, brush it
from your face
to see you,
knees drawn up in agony
i want to kiss your scarred arms
that took the blows for you
and hold you, in mine,
you don't know this exists,
that i can touch your secrets
from time to time,
and wipe your tears
as you sleep.
