a hug

she wrapped
her arms around him
as if never to let go

her small frailness
hugging with the full weight
of her heart

and he
felt the necessity
to be stronger
at this moment
of her need

sang a simple melody

you too
will stand taller
than most one day
you too
will have the ability
to sway
with no fear
of falling
for you too
are blossoming
into a beauty
before my eyes

for you my dear one
i will covet and protect
till i die

as a tear
from his eye
