Sometimes, I need this,
to just hold you and
to be quiet and close.

Sometimes, I remember
that I am weak and
that I need your strength.

Not that I'll ever
tell you any of this.

I just hope that when I
slip beside you and hold you,
resting my head against you
while not saying a word,
that you'll just let me
stay that way until
I am strong again.

Because sometimes
the weak are only
strong when they
have someone to be
strong for.
