You rub my knotted muscles and soothe my torn tendons.
I hold you through your nightmares and pull you into my loving arms, warm and panicking.
You follow me through twisting hallways you never would have known,
And I pull you through the paths you need to walk but have no strength to begin.
You lull me to sleep with your sweet, soft presence,
And I shower with you so you don’t feel alone.
We face life together, because I love your wise innocence.
We face life together, because you love me more than I could know.
But then I come back from the dream,
And I’m alone again it seems.
I am alone.
I’m simply feeling what I’ve never known.
