For My Dear by Kevin Legge

I sit and think,
I ponder life,
To swim or sink,
Peace or strife.
My beautiful dear,
Who holds my heart,
Who holds off my fear,
That we will part.
I kneel and pray,
I bow my head,
How bright the day,
Without dread.
She holds me tight,
She strokes my back,
I will not fight,
I will not lack.
She comforts me,
She is my dear,
For all to see,
For all to hear.
