Fill You Up

October 27, 2012

If the bottom should fall out from your cup,
I’ll give you mine and fill it up.

And if the bottom should fall from your world,
I know that I can’t board it back up for you
(no matter how I want to).

But I can fill you up.

I can fill you up again and
hear your spirits lift
like water reaching a higher pitch
as the brim gets ever nearer, ever closer,
and the water, so happy, nears flowing over.

I can fill you up
and touch your surface with my fingertips,
hold them above and watch your happiness drip
back into you.

I can fill you up
and see you ripple to a smile
like laughing, shimmering water.

I want to fill you up again.
