Gentle Giant

You sweet and gentle giant
Trying to give yourself to me
Tiring out your horses
Traveling far to get to me

Wanting to protect me, a tiny flower
from the dangers that could be
You cup me safely in your hands
and hope that I'll be yours to keep

I appreciate the sweetness
That you would bestow on me
But I am afraid the future is not mine
to bestow onto thee

I am made of love
So sharing it comes with ease
But my life has shown me
That a long love story may not ever be

I can show more love and caring
Than you have ever seen
But I am afraid that it may not be
What you want it to mean

Young sweet giant, so many mean to hurt
You & use you for your gifts
It is because I care so much
That I do not want my name on that list

To be honest, if your world were closer
I would spend my time with you
My decision not to accept your offer
Really had little to do with you

I knew that had I accepted
You would make every sacrifice
You would travel hours, take the time
Pour out on me and pay the price

You would look far ahead of us
Much farther than I could ever see
Eventually you would want to make the plans
To build a life with me

For all the things you wish to have
I know that you'ld work hard
But how could I allow you to
When I can't see that far?

      Writinglover. Thank you for finding it. Its good to know that I am not the only one lost in HP. I have to hunt a lot too. Not all good things are meant to be had. I guess its in the timing.

      I hate it when HP doesn't notify me of new hubs! Argh! I just found this on my FB timeline. Anyway, this was sad and beautiful! Voted it up!

      Yes, I can be sure about this one. She may only be a vague curiosity but there was nothing more than that to destroy yet.

      Hahaha, She didn't break anything. He hadn't invested his heart yet.

      You cruel woman! How could you break the giants heart? Giants need love too. LOL. Now he has to settle for what he can have rather than what he wants, and in the back of his mind he will always wonder what if. I'm not sure which is kinder, to deny, or to disappoint.
