You and I

How fast or slow we go

Has got to be up to me

This is a decision

I don’t take lightly

For my heart in your hands

Must be handled with care

I know how fragile it is

Giving my love to share

So no speeding past

What I can handle

Treat me with the care

Of a burning candle

Left alone it can set

The whole place on fire

But held tight it can be

A gentle light to inspire
