Homme Tendre

you are Soft and Sweet

like a late-summer fruit

kissed by the sun

warm, kind

I will not let anyone bruise you

 

don’t let a callus form

around your Light

the world needs more men

with tender hearts

who wear them proudly on their sleeves

 

step into the sea

be joyful

dance in the rain

cry on my shoulder

I am Your knight; you need not wear armor

 

my lovely boy

you deserve fireworks

in every heart

in every room

you walk into

 

or rather

They deserve You
