I need you
Like nothing I have ever known.
Air, food and water
Are nothing to my life, 
They bring mere sustenance. 
You fill my meager existence 
With your love.

Happy moments are made happier 
When I can share them with you.
At times when things in my mind are fuzzy,
You bring clarity.
When my demons begin to circle, 
You shelter me with your love.
For us.

I long for the times
When you are truly beside me, physically.
For your spirit never leaves me, 
You are forever in my heart,
Loving me. Even when 
I have given up, 
You never do.

You are my hero,
My knight in shining armor.
Dented and creased by the battles you have fought,
Never ceasing to protect me 
From the enemy
That lies in wait
To devour.

Finally living,
No greater love has ever been known to me.
Your arms enfold me, pulling me close,
Your heartbeat steadies my own.
I breathe your love
As it engulfs me,
Lifting me.

Your love 
Keeps me going, 
Filling me with the hope
Of a day when the battle is done. 
When the smoke clears and dust settles,
We shall stand there together,
