If You Wish

If you wish
You may unload your troubles on me
Ease them off your shoulders
Gently onto mine

Feel the relief
Then spread your wings
And fly
Unclipped uncaged unburdened
Across the floodwaters of humanity
Listen to the song of freedom

While I
Am bent with worry unclaimed
And crouch
And weaken
And fall to the ground
With your troubles drawing a veil of darkness
Over my eyes
In a ceaseless night

So bring me your troubles
Hide them in my heart
Go out into the sunshine

Leave me your troubles

That is
If you wish
