The poem is below.


Your look of innocence always makes me feel at home. 
My heart pounds rapidly as your essence overwhelms me
Doubt and fear of losing your light frightens me 
For without your glow, I will return to darkness
I have known the agony of loneliness 
The feeling of false hope has abused me so 
Afraid of losing the glimmer of hope 
Afraid of losing the light within 
Afraid of losing you
