i hold you close 
in a tight embrace;
your strength empowers me
when i need it most

when i slipped and fell 
lessons dropped from my knee…
i stood in a puddle of decisions
that led me out of hell

you left deep impressions
in my curiosity,
they served as a lighthouse
when i couldn’t see the sun

my breath is adagio
winding ‘round my heart
loosening fettered tendrils,
nourishing the unknown

i stand taller, stronger
when there’s much to face,
with you in my life
i am keeping the faith.
