I’ve held you more closely when
the night stole your sleep, and the
thoughts in your head brought pain.
I’ve seen the way your fear cuts
your breath, and dread leaves you
staring long into the darkness, deep.
I’ve been the broken one, tired and
scared — and you have been the
rock, that sheltered me in the night.
This love we are building keeps
us stronger, together — you
and me. We are made safe from
fear that finds us peacefully sleeping.
