In my extended hand I hold
my unclothed heart for you to unfold.
Invite you in and have you see,
this beating heart, inside of me.
In this heart I hold all treasures,
infinite love and all life’s pleasures.
An open heart is what I give.
Compassionately and truthful, I try to live.
But imperfection also resides
in this unfolded heart of mine
A shadow side for you to uncover.
An honest heart you will discover.
There, you may find a lack of trust
of this world I find unjust.
You may find resentments stored,
and insecurities that I hoard.
You may find my judgments made,
and what makes my heart afraid.
You may find a lack of love,
and the anger I’ve tried to rid myself of.
But what is dark inside of me,
I share with you to be set free.
I hope this gift you will receive;
This heart of mine, upon my sleeve.
And like the light I see in you,
I also see the dark side too.
But now that you have my heart to hold
Allow your heart to begin to unfold.
