    How I was afraid to pick you up!
    focusing never to hold you tight.
    Every flips made me nervous,
    thinking that you're all right.
    Each time I held you close,
    my heart sped for 'no slight bends!'
    Each time I put you down,
    My eyes scanned for intruders.
    I was your keeper and kept away the sneekers.
    I was a guardian to keep you safer.
    I was a hailer to praise your stories.
    I bet no one knew how worth you are,
    unless they knew this sorcery I had.
    The sorcery to breath in every word you had,
    The sorcery of carving them straight into my heart..!
