I am home

by Em   Dec 12, 2017

on my dark days you'd pick me up and carry me
on my good days you'd stand tall beside me
either way you were there being my ultimate rock:

carrying me when times were tough
wiping my tears when they fell
(they fell like waterfalls)
taking my hand when I wanted to let go and
holding my head above the raging waves
(they tried dragging me down countless times)

then you'd comfort me and things would be alright
even if only when your arms were wrapped around me

and the abyss I was once in disappeared with the tears that flowed upon the shoulder of your t-shirt;

replaced with love;

for I am
