It took knowing you to find myself

Discover my weaknesses and strengths

By facing the world your way


I was afraid to fail you

Now I am surprised at my resolve

Living in fear of the unknown


Hurting in your absence

Aching for your touch

Scared to close my eyes

In case I forget your face


Longing for the sound of your voice

Sometimes I hear you in the night


The star you follow is not mine

And in clear in present danger

You risk everything precious


For people


To me
