January 23

I tread waters of insecurity
fearing some day you will leave me –
just disappear – vanish into the night
    as darkness steals your warmth and light.
You promised you would never leave;
    you know you’re the very air I breathe.
But my fears existed long before we met,
    in dreams that I cannot forget.

Each night when you came to me
    we united in perfect harmony.
But with the light of an new day,
    You simply vanished – went away.

I dreamed this dream for many years,
    experienced the laughter and the tears.
I dreamed the same dream every night,
    always losing you come morning’s light.

And now that you are finally here
    my love’s so great, I need you near.
But I tread water of insecurity –
    fear someday soon you may leave me.
