In the Shadows


I am the one who waits, in the shadows, a step behind
Always near, waiting patiently, for you to need me.
I am there to catch you should you fall and hold you until you rise again.
I am there to cheer your accomplishments and bear your frustrations.

Always near, waiting patiently, for you to need me.
I am the protector of secrets and the fire of your passion.
The nurturer, the encourager, the one to slake your thirst and quench your lust.
Never asking for praise. Made whole by your declaration of love.

I am the protector of your secrets and the fire of your passion.
I was wandering in the dark until that fire lit my way.
Since that moment I have never felts so satisfied and safe.
