Stephanie Bennett-Henry – Fire in the heart, not extinguished.
When I fall, I fall too hard,
I guess I always will.
And maybe I don’t know how
to let go at the right time,
but eventually I do in my own time.
It’s not as easy as it sounds,
falling hard and rising back up
in a way that appears graceful
enough to keep some dignity.
I never learned how to hold
someone or something
with hands from only half of my heart.
I guess sometimes that can be too much.
I guess I can be too much.
I’m sure it’s not just me
There must be others out there
who love too hard
and take the loss when it comes
like a death they’ll mourn forever
I still bring flowers to your memory
and cry for all that stayed unanswered.
I hold your hand down memory lane
and hope that sometimes
your heart let’s you stroll that way…
