Sitting in the depth of oneís own self
Calling down to the world from upon the shelf
Neither minding nor caring for tomorrow today
Wondering just why itís here that I stay
Then seeing your face from across the room
Feeling your love take away all the gloom
Allowing your smile to warm me inside
No more from myself do I want to hide
Wandering alone from corner to space
Alone with myself is generally the case
No talking, no touching, just myself and I
At times just wanting to curl up and die
Then thinking of you and the feelings we share
Needing so badly to hear that you care
Knowing you love me fills me with pride
Thankful each day for the pathway we stride.
