Take your hands off that scar.
Hands off that scar.
I know it’s new and it itches – you want to see the healing
But hands off that scar.
So sad, you came to me.
You thought your heart would break.
We watched the crack form
You thought you would snap in half
But you didn’t.
You held still, watching that rivulet fill with gold,
Brashly running through scary places
Your scar has made you more precious.
Can you see?
and burns away
as the sun
are as constant
And I am as constant as the moon that says
You don’t have to shine for everyone all the time.
Let me reflect your own light back to you
So you can see.
Keep your hands close to me.
And off that scar.
