IF YOU LOVE SOMETHING…

He held her gently.
Non-possessive.
Unassuming.
Willing to let her be
as free as she needed to be;
to make her feel wanted.

His caresses were gentle,
barely a touch.
It was more like a sensation
that gave her a sense of security
without any strings.
No fences could enclose her.
No heart could hold her.
She was a rare flower
with fragile petals.

She was a frightened bird
who rested in his trembling hands.
Barely a touch held her.
No enclosure surrounded her.
She was free to fly.
He loved her;
and he had to set her free.

He knew in her freedom she found security.
In his hands she felt so free. He loved her so!
