The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

Maureen White

You keep saving my life
In the most gentle way
Your tears flow so easily
When you ask me to stay.
I keep running towards darkness
And you keep bringing me back
When I have no more expectations
You provide what I lack.
When I look at you I see beauty
In its most perfect form
When you hold me I am secure
With you I have been reborn.
You have found my pain...touched it
And at times it frightens me to death
That when I lay dying from it
You revive me with your breath.
And so, I give thanks for this love
That has kept me alive and secure
And for your determination
To keep the darkness outside our door.

I love you,
