Would you let someone in,

Anyone at all,

Just to know,

Or to see,

What it’s like to be warm,

Would you comfort a stranger,

Not knowing their name,

Just to be held,

To be wrapped in the flame,

Would you open yourself,

Your heart and your soul,

Knowing of the frost,

When the fire grows cold.

Can You?

Can you catch me a wish,

A look or a smile,

Capture a teardrop,

And hold it a while,

*

Can you bring me a feeling,

Wrapped up in lace,

An imprisoned assurance,

That I can embrace,

*

Can you grasp me a thought,

Like a want or a need,

And steal me a wonder,

To grow from a seed,

*

Can you show me the promise,

In a trust and a hope,

And rescue them for me,

These dreams they evoke.
