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.
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
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,
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,
