Slipping Away

I can’t avoid my mind; it finds a way
to focus on the things I want to do
The things I want to do have slipped away
I hope you know I want to be with you
My mind is focused now on holding tight
to love so that it will not slip away
I saw you holding love as well, we might
hold on to one another; love will stay
because I love you and you love me too.
Our feet are planted where they’ll stand with strength
I can’t avoid my heart; my heart is true
and I will hold your love for any length
of time. You lift me up when I am low
Your arms are where I want to slip, to go.
