Day 3 Poetry a Day Challenge: Take

Take my right slipper
when you break yours
Take my jacket button
to hold up your pants..
Take my prayers
floating skyward,
let them whisper you to sleep.
Take my eyes
to help you search for what eludes you.
Take my book
when words betray you,
Take my hands
to tether you.
Take my intestines
to center yourself
and at the end of the days
when I have nothing left to take
but my left earring,
take this poem
and know love.
