With You




With you? The monsters don't seem so scary.

And life? Not so tough.

You are the sunshine to my darkness.

You keep me safe beside you.


Without you? The darkness closes in.

And the monsters? They start descending.

My breath become to shallow

I yell out in the night and my tears begin to fall.


Life is: terrifying, horrifying, paralizing, petrifying.


When you take my hand? The clouds roll back.

The sun? Starts rising, and hope reviving.

You take the load of my shoulders.

Lift the heavyness from my soul.


Life is? Is all around me, flowers blooming, stars gleaming, moon shining.

You? Make it all seem so easy. Magical. Marvelous Miraculous.

With you? Life is not so daunting.
