Companionship

Written by: Laura Breidenthal

I will watch over you
To protect you from all harm
You will never have to fear
What lies there grinning in the dark
You will sleep soundly as I stand guard
Surrounding you with comforting awareness
Dancing and swirling in your soothing dreams
Your mind saturated in lovely things
And as darkness scours the earth around you
I will sing you songs of hope
Praising you for holding on
When all else seems to fail
When all freedom falls
Entrusted companionship will give us permission
To forgivingly prevail
