Lighting strikes the world outside my window
And the bed begins to shake
and in an instant I'm missing you.
I search my room, waiting for your
presence to be visible.
But, instead, I see nothing...
Beginning to miss you even more, I begin to cry.
But the world outside my window
Can't see the tears in my eyes.
The storm coming down seems to erase the tracks
Of my tears- or does the storm camouflage my tears,
Insecurities and fears.
I can't deny the impact you have had on me
It seems like when ur not around I'm never complete.
You always give me the calm before the storm.
In ur arms, that?s where I belong.
You?re my security blanket on those cold nights
You keep me warm.
You shelter me from the storm.
