A Wish for Silence

sometimes you wish for the silence
that stillness where you can be alone
with your thoughts to sift through
trying to unravel the knots that form
in the sea of doubts and self-deprecation.

sometimes the silence can be a friend
when you feel that you’ve lost the horizon
drifting without direction, without course
unsure of where to drop your heavy anchor
as the waves keep crashing and crashing.

sometimes in the silence comes clarity
a flash of light in the midst of darkness
the chaos that runs rampant becomes peaceful
a sigh of contentment, a smile will bloom
and all is right with the world once more.

This is where I belong, right by your side,
walking with you even on roads you dislike.
I’ll be your companion, your friend, your light,
there’s nothing to be afraid of, no matter what your plight.
I’ll protect you from your shadows,I’ll bear any hurt you feel,
as long as I see you standing tall and unafraid, I’ll be happy as can be.
I’ll hold your hand so you won’t falter, I’ll pick you up when you fall down,
because there is no reason why you should feel alone,
even if you think there’s no one around,
for I’ll always be with you, even though we’re miles apart.
I’ll wipe away the tears that fall from your eyes that perceive,
a different kind of world that you had gladly shown to me.
In everything that you do, I’ll always be with you.
I’ll take care of you, my sweet, because you mean everything to me.
