I Am Not Solitary
When I looked out over the patio tonight I noticed a single star,
With fog so dense you couldn’t see the moon, I new you are not so far.
I stared at you for a while hoping for a reason,
Then realized at that very moment that you weren’t out of season.
You always will be alive in my heart and memories,
And in my silent smiles and cries,
So strong in fact that it has burned a hole in the fog,
Just so that the light of you can keep us warm and protected with a log.
Though night shall fade and day shall come,
I know that you will not have abandoned me a some
For you are now my shadow that guides and protects my day,
I know now that I shall never walk behind and stay.
One would not think to ever hurt me,
For they will see you at my side,
Keeping all the distances abide-
And know that a man of great stature and power protects me.
I will sleep easy tonight,
Knowing that you are there beside me,
When I feel that extra bit of warmth and security at night,
I know it is but your arms wrapped around me.
I am Never Alone,
And You Are Never Forgotten.
