Safety


You came along, when
I had no more to give;
and your presence
stirred my soul;
gave me cause to live,
made my fragments whole.
Gave my life some meaning,
changed the way I
looked at things;
made me realize that love,
can bring a heart to sing;
can lift the deepest sorrow,
with the gift it always brings.
You came along when,
I was at my lowest rung,
weary, battle-scarred,
when my last song was sung;
You never doubted me
when I told you of my life,
the toils, the trouble, the
heartbreak, the endless strife.
You smiled and said I love you,
then you took and held my hand,
and we walked on through tomorrow,
and today, with you, I stand.
You came along when,
apathy, was my only friend;
when I was down and out,
when I thought the pain
would never end.
But where there's love
there's hope, and you
were there for me;
now, I'm safe, within your arms.
and from those, I'll never flee.
