You Are Not Alone
 
YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Ever since I can remember
I found delight in morning’s stillness
As though the stars were not ready to leave
Or perhaps they were simply listless.

Yet I would listen until
Whispers chose to be heard
In every moment, in every pause
Of dawn’s softest words.

But then came the day
The stillness was broken.
My screams were the only words heard,
No words were spoken.

For I had lost the one I loved
With no sweet moment of goodbye.
How I begged And how I cried!

The years have passed
And now I begin
To hear the whispers
Once again.

I delight in morning’s stillness
Once more
Just as I did
Days before.

For I hear your whisper
In the wind...
A promise I hear once again.

‘I will forever be
By your side
And I’ll wipe the tears
You may cry.

Be strong, my love,
And always know
I never ever
Wanted to go

But forget not
That I am here
In the morning’s stillness
So never fear.

You are not alone
And never will you be.
For I wake with you.
Love, Me’

I now delight in the stillness,
Those moments
Just before dawn
When your promise is heard
In a truth I’ve always known.
