Lightning Crashes

Lightning crashes as I reach out my hand, I long to feel your touch.

Feel your breath surround me now, my unbridled fear overcomes.

Frozen in time is all I know, but I sense that you are there.

I feel your whisper like a breeze, as the wind blows my long dark hair.

My legs are heavy and unable to move, as the quicksand drowns my soul.

Hurry please and save me now, can you hear my silent screams?

I don’t think my heart can take this rush, listening for you to call my name.

The chaos creates a deafening hush, as my night time turns to day.

My eyes slowly open to see your face, my senses react and understand.

Lying in your arms embrace now, your presence is with me everywhere.

I now see your protection never fails, at my side you will always be.

So safely I close my eyes at night, no worries that you’ll leave.

You’re with me through thick and thin, my longing heart will forever believe.
