Trouble Me


Trouble…

Trouble me
Disturb me with all your cares and your worries.
Trouble me
…on the days when you feel spent.

Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden
when my back is sturdy and strong?

Trouble me.

Speak to me
Don’t mislead me, the calm I feel means a storm is swelling.
Speak to me
There’s no telling where it starts or how it ends.
Speak to me
Why are you building this thick brick wall to defend me…
Speak to me
…when your silence is my greatest fear?

Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden
when my back is sturdy and strong?

Speak to me.

Let me
…have a look inside these eyes while I’m learning.
Let me
Please don’t hide them just because of tears.
Let me
…send you off to sleep with a “There, there, now stop your turning and tossing.”
Let me
Let me know where the hurt is and how to heal.

Spare me? Don’t spare me anything troubling.

Trouble me
Disturb me with all your cares and your worries.
Speak to me
…and let our words build a shelter from the storm.
Let me
And lastly, let me know what I can mend.

There’s more, honestly, than, my sweet friend, you can see.
Trust is what I’m offering if you trouble me.
