Let’s go 50/50

Be patient with yourself

you’re doing the best you can

and when it feels too heavy

shift some of the burden

onto these shoulders of mine;

we can walk side by side.

Your worry is never

a fault of your own.

And when you get anxious,

give me the big pieces

we’ll split them in two-

one for me,

and one for you.

There’s no finish line

nothing that we’re racing to.

And we’ve got time-

time to worry,

time to fight.

But also

time to love,

time to smile,

time to hold;

onto each other,

and to release the rest.

So give give give,

the pieces you would rather

let go.

I’m taking taking taking,

it all in stride with you too.
