The Distance

I want to help you, but you shut me out, are you really going to make me guess?
I want to be close to you, but there is a screen between us, you've given me a clout.
You won’t tell me, I prod, you won’t confess, we've created such a mess.
What is in your mind? What is this all about?
Please tell me, I am so confused…
Do you know you've left me bruised?

When you are sad and when you are in pain…I feel the same.
I see in your eyes, more than you tell.
I see in your brow all the cares of the world, of which you are not to blame.
I want to know your smiles, your tears, your pain…I want to know them well.
Please tell me, I am so lost, and I sense danger…
It’s as if I closed my eyes and now see a stranger…

I am Here


Don’t be afraid my dear,
I am here, by your side,
Holding the candle of light that will
Break through the darkness
Of your mind.

Don’t be afraid my dear,
I am here, by your side,
Holding the shield to catch
The arrows of your enemies.

Don’t worry my dear,
I am here, by your side,
If you take my hand and hold it tight,
I will guide you through the thorns and vines.

Don’t worry my dear,
I am here, by your side,
I will bring you to the still safe waters
Where you will drink and revive yourself.

The battle is not over yet my dear,
But don’t fear, for I am here.
